A very unusual fungi Tony and a nice picture also. It does look like someone had lunch under a tree and peeled an orange :wink:

I run across these every once in a while. They are quite pretty and interesting. If one is lucky you can catch a springtail or two crawling or jumping about nearby. Nice photo there Tony :D
