Fungi and a frosty fusion in the forest

I took a walk up to Glenamour Loch yesterday Tuesday the 18th of December 2012.

My first look was at the wee loch Glengarren where I took these first couple of pictures

This strange bit of fungus was on the underside of a branch

I thought at first this was a discarded ice cream tub 'til I took a closer look

Glenamour Loch was reflective

Occasionally on the forest floor there was the odd bit of ice. This is a macro shot, the size of the icy lump is in context in the next picture 

The blades of grass show it's size

Next I found a dead tree with a lot of fungi 

In this last picture I took this close up but I failed to take one to show the true size of fungi. The largest of these was no more than 10 mm or 3/8th of an inch across. The branch was the thickness of a shepherds walking stick  

That was an enjoyable stroll

    Thanks Rose, I could have lots of fun with my camera up in the tropics of the Antipodes. I'll have to think of a Christmas blog post.
