A shot of a tree in Melbourne University. The lawn in front of the Raymond Priesley, and near to the Wilson Hall.

Stream Of Trees

(image)
There used to be a water stream running through it. But it was replaced with lots of wood chips and some trees. I believe it must be from the pressure of water restriction and a little more maintanance to remove all the dead leaves that drop on it especially in autumn.



Flowers From Seeds

I can't particularly remember the name of the flower.

This is a macro of the previous shroom. The cracking patterns reminded me of the geography lesson about continents drifting apart but used to be one whole large island called the pangea.



Fossil evidence for Pangaea includes the presence of similar and identical species on continents that are now great distances apart. For example, fossils of the therapsid Lystrosaurus have been found in Gandu, South Africa, India and Australia, alongside members of the Glossopteris flora, whose distribution would have ranged from the polar circle to the equator if the continents would have been in their present position; similarly, the freshwater reptile Mesosaurus has only been found in localized regions of the coasts of Brazil and West-Africa.[5]

Additional evidence for Pangaea is found in the geology of adjacent continents, including matching geological trends between the eastern coast of South America and the western coast of Africa.

Mario Shrooms

This mushroom looks a little like Mario Bros's super mushroom. The one with a fat stalk and red head.

A closeup of the same previous mushroom but from a different angle and showing the dark black ground at the back.



Peeling Gills

Peeling Gills

(image)
A macro shot of the gills from a bottom angle. The blotches of lights that passes thorough the between the leaves of the tree on top gives some very exiting blur and colour to the image.



Mushroom Gills are the technical term for the thin flaps that resemble fish-gills under the cap of a mushroom. They aren't there to help the mushroom breathe: rather, they are there to produce the spore (seeds, if you will) for the mushroom.

Not all mushrooms have gills under the cap: some have pores instead.

The area on a mushroom where the spores are produced, whether it is gills or pores or otherwise, is called generically the "Hymenophore".

This mushroom seemed to have pushed the decaying material aside and popped out of the ground.



Depressed Shrooms

Depressed Shrooms

(image)
Many large shrooms sprout out of the ground when there is a long enough rain in melbourne. These few mushrooms are from the Melbourne University, opposite the mechanical building. I specially took my camera to the university the next day to take these shrooms.

Also taken at the South Lawn. This one a little bigger than the previous mushroom.

Beheaded

(image)
As we head over to the South Lawn to get more of mushroom photos. This photo was quite challenging in the sense that the mushroom itself is small and so low and the soil was also quite damp. So I had to do a rough focus and composition and peering through the viewfinder a few centimeters away.



Pores

Pores

(image)
The same mushroom as the previous one. This one from a slighly lower angle to essentiate a little more gills.



Some mushrooms are generically called "gill fungi." Beneath their caps are hundreds of flat, vertical partitions radiating like spokes of a wheel from the center of the cap (top and right). On either side of each gill lie microscopic sporangia that produce the even-tinier spores. In other mushrooms, the cap's underside resembles a fine sponge (below). These are "pore fungi," in which spores emanate from sporangia within tiny holes under the cap. The size of these holes varies from species to species, as may the color and overall texture.

In all types of mushrooms, spores may be either light and dry, or somewhat sticky. As dry spores ripen, gravity pulls them from the sporangia and they fall directly to the forest floor or are carried away from the parent mushroom by wind or water. Sticky spores tend to get moved to another locale when they adhere to insects. Since mature mushrooms often smell rotten, they can attract beetles and flies that lay their eggs in the cap. The resulting grubs or maggots may transport the spores, as may the more mobile adults they eventually become.

I'm sure those people dining in the Crown posh restaurant were glad that the glass were quite thick. A texture was applied to the image.

Any one hungry? This one is sure to gross anyone who is planning to have cornflakes or spaghetti. I was lucky that I captured her as she swings her head and had the spaghetti flying to one side.

A very good sign. So unfortunate that you are not a vegan anymore.

Do you have one? Well, then can you spare him one?

I'm loving it...
