Double bracket

Another bracket fungus, this one a little closer to home, spotted on a recent walk up the riverside near the Rowing Club.  I really haven't a clue what type this one is; there appear to be several not dissimilar examples. Aren't fungi amazing things? Very other-worldly, I think. Sadly, I suspect it means this tree is on its way out. The fruiting body is the outward and visible sign of decay and rot to the heartwood of the tree.


  1. Bracket fungus can certainly be impressive, and this one's a beaut. I know what you mean - they seem a bit alien.

  2. The fungus is a nice detail, jennyfreckles.
