Yes, It’s Actually This Orange

This sure jumps out at you, doesn’t it? Orange Peel Fungus (Aleuria aurantia).
A couple of patches had been recorded in Green-Wood by others on iNaturalist and I just had to see it in person. I was not disappointed.

With the library, my main source of books, shut down for months and now hard to get to, I’ve not read a lot of natural history this year. But we have Merlin Sheldrake’s Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds & Shape Our Futures on tap, so stay tuned. (“Merlin Sheldrake”? Surely an alias…)

It’s Pearl Harbor every day now with COVID deaths, and the criminal moral depravity that is the President plays golf and tweets about TV. We’re almost at 9/ll levels, every single day, and Mitch McConnell, that malignity, sends the Senate home. More people were reported dead on Tuesday from this disease in the US than in all of Japan during all of 2020 (so far), and we still haven’t gotten the full numbers from Thanksgiving weekend.
