Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

Thank you for the nomination...I'm so happy because It's a beautiful fungus :)

This reminds me of a stinkhorn fungus. Did it smell bad?

Wow! Such a cool fungus! Do you have any more shots of it? These are usually very short lived, looks like you caught it at its peak.
