False Turkey Tail

The False Turkey Tail, Stereum ostrea is probably one of my favorite mushrooms.  It's not particularly interesting or unusual.  It's certainly not rare.  It's more like a "comfort" fungus maybe.  It's always around, hard at work, quietly decomposing lignin.  It's not showy or grand in any, but to one who has a discerning eye it offers many nuanced patterns, textures, and colors to admire.

Note: this is available in a number of formats at Red Bubble.
