Tiny fungi in the garden

 Spotted these strange little fungi growing on some old rope in the garden (its part of an old cat scratching post, put outside for the purpose of seeing what, if any, fungi I could get)

Clouds + Gulls

 Every evening the gulls fly over on their way to their roosting site, and I often go out to check out the sky for interesting clouds. On this evening I went outside with my phone and combined both!

A humongous fungus

 Spotted growing at the bottom of a Whitebeam tree, I thought it might be Chicken of the Woods, but I  discovered its actually called Meripilus giganteus.
