Climbing a ridge off the beaten path, I was struck by the glow as the noontime sun backlit an orange jelly fungus growing through a slit in the bark of a dead tree. Seems that no matter how many times we traipse the ancient woods, there is always something new.
Jelly fungus oozes from the bark of a dead tree.
Like some orange quartz crystal jutting from a stone, this jelly fungus bursts from a slit in the tree bark.
In this image, you can see where the fungus is emerging from a slit in the bark.
