I survived the Tasmanian Fungi Festival, and photographing some lichen in the snow!

Lichen! Photobucket
Coprinellus disseminatus (I think...), a saprophyte (wood-decaying fungus) in the forest.

(It's very difficult to photograph ice, I am quickly learning. I took a class on macro photography and the instructor was kind enough to help me out with my 4th hand, lacking-in-English-instruction-manual camera from Japan.) Met lots of lovely people in my backpacker's hostel, met interesting people at the fungal conservation and management symposium (and discovered it's a very small world), and now have a slightly better idea of what mushrooms and toadstools I am likely to run into in the field.

And I saw snow! Snoooooow!!
(If people want to see more photos, let me know, but they're either very Touristy, or close-ups of plants in the snow.)
