Still There!

Now we were getting close to the first destination!

A tiny mushroom shading the mosses.
Nothing goes to waste as a fungus grew on a dead beetle.

A tiny forest of Cladonia lichens!
I thought this was a rock until I turned it over. πŸ™‚

Another tiny mushroom!

A funky looking Cladonia lichen. So yes another investigation for the home lab.

The destination! Doesn’t look like much eh. Well the Pinesap (Monotropa hypopitys) was still there. It’s brown plant. And it hadn’t moved an inch. LOL.

So I was so pleased that it was still standing since finding it a month ago.

And what interesting seed pods! The FNCT says that they bloom from April to July. My hope had been to find more. We did a search again near by. No luck. πŸ™ Well, there is always next year. πŸ™‚

And now it was time to head back to the car. We still had two more quick stops to check.

Keep looking!

  1. Huge congratulations for your find! I hope there are more nearby somewhere. Are they sporadic bloomers like the Hexalectris?
