Knitting, birding and eating in Costa Rica, Wisconsin, and other interesting places.

Being continually moist, a cloud forest has many kinds of fungus. They are important in the breakdown and recycling of material such as fallen trees. Besides doing important work they are very interesting to look at.
I liked the circular design of these shelf fungi.
The fruiting bodies of most fungi are ephemeral, making a continually changing show in the cloud forest.
This one reminded me of an abstract painting.
Someday I want to see some of the fungus that glows in the dark.
I like traveling, knitting, languages, birdwatching, bicycling, the arts, eating... I spend about 5 months a year in Monteverde, Costa Rica, and the rest of the time in Madison, Wisconsin or traveling.
