  3. This is beautiful Calee. Colors are subdued yet vibrant. And, thank you for wishing americans happy thanksgiving. We have much to be grateful for and so many take it all for granted.

  4. Beautiful shot (I was in the woods today looking for a turkey tail too, but came up empty handed) and thanks for the Thanksgiving Day wishes. Ideally we would be thankful each day for what we have, but it’s nice to have a special day set aside (even thought the highlights for many are eating, shopping, and watching American football).

    • Thanks Mike! Turkey tail mushrooms are very common, I didn’t take any picture of them before because I thought they were too common. But I wanted to post something for Thanksgiving and couldn’t find a real turkey.. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Bella! These mushrooms are very common, they’re just everywhere in the forest. The nice thing about them is that they come in all kinds of colors. If I find some good examples, I’ll post some pictures to show that later.

  8. Great shot. I just sat looking at it. If it were red it would look like a rose.

    • Thanks Sensei! πŸ™‚ They come in all kinds of colors but I haven’t seen red.. I never thought about the likeness to a rose before, but maybe you’re right!
