A few days ago, while looking for some small orchids in North Quabbin, I came across this rotting pine stump covered with tiny mushrooms.
It’s just an iPhone shot and didn’t get all the color as you’ll see. I went back yesterday because I felt they deserved a little more study. But I got a bonus when I settled on a composition as it held this small Cranefly ( Limonia triocellata) overnighting on the Pinewood Gingertail (Xeromphalina campanella) cluster.
If you look closely you will notice it has lovely blue eyes although the one on the right is somewhat obscured by a blurry leg.
