karlinha74 Who can tell me what these bugs are?!! Two days ago I prepared a spore print of a large white mushroom I found in the yard. I covered it in a tin cake pan with a lid and took it to school to let the kids take part in the big reveal. All was fine and the spore print was dark brown. We covered everything back up and...I forgot the pan at school. So today when I opened the pan the mushroom cap had completely melted and there were all these tiny brown oval shapes bugs crawling on it. There were even more dead in the pan! It was totally wild to watch it decompose right before our eyes. Can anyone shed any scientific light on this for me?!! I know, this picture doesn't show the detail- macro lense was at home. #shroomatnoon #groovy_shrooms @shroomatnoon #fungifreaks #jj_fungus 2w
  •   rpmiguel I'm not an expert, but could it be termites? It's similar to this here. http://www.ogpbb.com/articles/index.html 2w
  •   glycine3 It's hard to see but termites it looks like but I don't think they eat shrooms!! 2w
  •   karlinha74 @rpmiguel Thanks Rui! I think you are correct. A few students mentiones termites as well. 2w
  •   karlinha74 @glycine3 Yes! I'm going with termites. A few students mentioned termites along with you and another poster. How'd they get there? They had to have hatched/ matured in the 12 hours they sat closed up over night. 2w

karlinha74 I see you every time it rains. I recognize you in the fog. I look for you in the mist and in the shadows. The rain brought us together... It's raining. I know you'll find me here in a ghostly fashion with no name and no face. And I'll know it's you. Because we share the rain. -Bird nest fungus #groovy_shrooms #shroomatnoon 3w

  •   patrickktown Very nice! 4w
  •   karlinha74 @patrickktown why thank ya! 4w
  •   marijean Where do you find these interesting things?:) 2w
  •   karlinha74 @marijean This one was growing in the wood chips right along my driveway. Try just standing (or squatting is best- lol) in the yard, garden, or wooded (chips are good) area and just be still and observe. Once you spot a few you will be more in tune with how, when, and where they grow. It's a whole new world!!! 2w

karlinha74 A new form. Ghostly. I sense your presence but I cannot see you. You can't reveal yourself to me- there is no way...but I know you are there- and all is fleeting. (Taken from my window at work this morning.) 1mon

karlinha74 Part 2. This wall was built on optimism. Love. Hope. Protection. Freedom. Nature reclaims and all that was...must surrender. It cannot be rebuilt. 2mon

karlinha74 My wall...is being peeled away. Fresh gaping wound from the current storm. My bricks will crumble if you lean on me anymore. I will collapse if I feel the breath of your wind which carries whispers from long ago. My steel blue facade fiends strength but it is the only thing holding me together. 2mon

karlinha74 So, there's this pizza joint that I frequent and it emits the most wonderful vibe. I asked the owner if we we're going for a ride and he took me for a few donuts in the road!! This is a rusty spot on the side of the owner's van. If you're interested you csn scroll way back in my gallery to see a photo of the awesome Volkswagon in front of the pizzeria. #rustlord #rsa_preciousjunk 2mon
  •   oneloneswordsman Hi Karla, Do you know how Rob @robdizzll_ud is as it has been months since I heard from him? 2mon
  •   oneloneswordsman Awesome rust BTW 2mon
  •   karlinha74 @oneloneswordsman Hey Robert! I finally heard from @robdizzll_ud about two weeks ago. His new business is doing very well and he's been busy. He's also taking, for a number of other personal reasons, a break from IG. Please keep him in your prayers. If he gives me permission to share more I will message you- he still hasn't opened my last message. 2mon
