In the last 12 months, especially during March when we were in the South and Stewart (Rakiura) Islands, I've photographed more fungi in the NZ bush. They are magnificent structures but their taxonomy is such (and I'm too old) that I can't identify them with any accuracy. Nevertheless have a look below at them and just enjoy their beauty. Just how they can convert a relatively unstructured mycelium beneath the surface into these forms never ceases to intrigue me.
I have recently put a collection of my photos of NZ fungi together as a sound slideshow on Vimeo. You can go there by clicking here.
Here are some of my photos from the last year.
