[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi every one, I discovered todays post when I was walking my dog Huxley over at Vancouver Lake. I came across this tree with a large patch of some type of fungi. After some sharping and some cropping I thought it made for a neat and different image. The full view is in the work shop. Thanks for looking.

Hi Tom,

I'm not a fungi specialist so I don't know what it is, but as an artistic image it sure looks very nice - a catching pattern with good contrast and sharpness, TFS!

Best regards,
