The woods have ears – 22/365


A random one today from the archives. I enjoy the wonders of fungi. Many and varied, they can create interesting images. Whilst it is said that all fungi are edible once, there are far fewer that you would want to eat. Although these are edible, they are not one that I have tried yet. Generally, they are viewed as having little taste and a somewhat rubbery texture.

One day though.

With a variety of common names including “Jews Ear”, “Jelly Ear” and “Wood Ear” they are normally found growing on dead wood.

Latin Name: Auricularia auricula-judae
