thealphamare Remember when I first met my little pet garden spider that I named Davinci because of her incredibly unusual and artistic web? (If you don't, scroll thru my gallery...you'll find her and the web.) She still lives at my pond...and sure 'nuff looks like some baby Davincis are on the way! 2w

thealphamare Time to resurface and lay down my social media sabbatical. What better way than with a gorgeous teeny petite fungus. These formed on a terry washcloth draped over a wooden fencepost during the weekend rains. 1mon
  •   dawnmother Don't think this is a coral fungus at all! It reminds me if a cantharellus of some sort. Lets ask some of my go to people @leah_lady or @swampyappleseed if they know? 4w
  •   dawnmother Or possibly a chanterelle bit see no sign of gill form. 4w
  •   leah_lady Is the color pretty accurate on this? Being so tiny and maybe sprouting from wood my best guess would be Dacryopinax sp. There are chanterelle species without ridges or with barely any (Cantharellus confluens/lateritius), but they wouldn't grow on a rag or wood. @dawnmother 4w
  •   dawnmother Thanks @leah_lady it looks like they've grown through the cloth. So cute, so right now they're just little duck feet!!!! 4w
  •   thealphamare Thank you @leah_lady and @dawnmother! They were growing on the surface of a terry washcloth left draped over a wooden fence rail after a few cool days of rain. There were just a few little clusters like this and they never got much bigger, but once the sun came out they started dying back. The color here is pretty accurate. I didn't investigate under the cloth...I didn't want to disturb these little cuties! 4w

thealphamare So excited to find this little diddy today! It's a spiny backed orb weaver spider. First time I ever saw one was years ago and it was solid black, but otherwise, exactly like this one. I've hoped to find another ever since...so today while filling the water trough, there she is, seemingly hanging in midair! So of course, an iPhone photo shoot ensued... 2mon
