Moss and Mushrooms on a log
Fungi perform a very important function in the forest by decomposing fallen logs. The mushrooms are the "fruiting bodies" of the fungus, they appear when the fungus has grown enough to reproduce. Mushrooms are very difficult to identify, so I will not put the names under the photos unless I am completely sure of what they are.
