Something Strange

Crystal Brain Fungus (Exidia nucleata) – To my intial eye and mind’s interpretation it looks like a jellied seal chilling out on a branch. But we don’t have jellied seals. do we? This was found on a small rotting twig, and it would shrivel to nothing but a rubber patch in dry weather, so you could hardly see it. It is a common wood-rotting species of jelly fungus found across Europe and North America. It also goes by the name of Granular Jelly Roll. Sounds yummy.

  1. Like people who can’t help staring at a bad auto accident I couldn’t help not clicking twice. I see the seal’s flipper but I also see a hound dog’s head. 🙂 Nice job of capturing an interesting subject.

  2. Crystal brain fungus that does indeed look like a melting jellied seal. Something to go with The Strange, The Weird, The Odd of a few weeks ago. You can’t half spot some peculiar stuff. A bit of woodland crystal brain fungus spotting for me soon, methinks.
