Fungi in the Woods

The grounds of Bloedel Reserve included a lot of different types of growth.  Meadows and woodland, organized gardens and natural growth.  There is obviously a lot of moisture in some areas because the amount of fungal growth was substantial.  Some of the fungi were small growths while others seemed to be substantial organisms.  The majority were growing on tree trunks, whether still alive or lying dead on the ground.  While I find fungus interesting, there is a lurking thought in my mind from watching too many sci-fi movies that, as I get close, spores will burst forth and I shall be infected with some terrible disease.  Fortunately , this time I got away with it.  Clearly, there is no harm to watching to much TV as a kid.
