Fancy Fungus

     Yesterday I blogged about nature breaking down a tree stump, today I have a photo of a "conk" or fungus that grows on trees and helps the process of breaking them down. Some conks are parasitic and grows on living trees, the one shown in the photo, I found on a dead piece of tree lying on the forest floor in Indiana.  It is the prettiest one I have ever seen.  It looks a lot like a butterfly.
