There are so many more but I thinned it down. Good aint it!
Smithy. I'm not so good with my Fungus identification. Not prepared to take the risk of being hospitalised or institutionalised.
Andy. If any of you ever visit, it would be a pleasure to take you there.

Great photo's Will - nice to see where you get some of your inspiration from.

The fungi looks like beefsteak to me too. Real test is slicing its flesh with a knife - it should look like a piece of raw meat inside. Strangely, the beefsteak fungus rots the inside of the tree, but will not kill it. They usually appear on the same tree year after year, so need the tree's survival to preserve its own. Oak wood darkened by beefsteak fungus is apparently very desireable in the furniture trade.

Soak strips of it in milk for an hour or two before eating it - just fry or grill it like you would a steak. A lovely treat at this time of year.

I certainly did Ed. Very Happy Came with a manual as thick as the Bible. May take some time to get used to it.

The imaginary figures that one can perceive out of these ancient trees (and all similar trees) are something that always astonishes me since I was a little child.
Happy to look at these excellent photos.
Thank you!

That's an excellent wood full of old character Will. Great photo's too! Beafsteak fungus is excellent but a mycologist on hand is reassuring.

Will that is absolutely stunning! What a magical place! those trees are amazing!!!
But is it my medication, or is there realy a small blue smurf in some of your pictures? Very Happy Very Happy
Those new cameras are hard to grasp indeed! I think that I am only using 10 % off what my new camera is capable of!

Impressive indeed, Will! I never would have thought Ilex could reach such size!

I was trying to think of something scathingly witty regarding the hirsute face hidden within that tree but decided to let you off.

For now, at least.

I get a real buzz visiting this ancient space. I haven't explored a quarter of it yet. Maybe one day you can come with me. It is not a public area and not many people know its there. I did try and lose the smurf but he would just appear out of nowhere. I might go back and get some of the Beefsteak to try but as long as I don't start seeing Smurfs all the time. confused

Come on then Steve. You haven't held back before, so why now? Make it quick though. Might take my mind off the Ginger ride by I've been expecting of late. affraid

Birmingham is my hometown and its not so bad. There are a few places, but the center of skanky is good, there are always plenty of events, some good restaurants near the canal and bars, nightclubs, good shopping and good. I do not see how you can call the central region of the price and then say that London.

I thought it was a troll, Will! Was going to delete his account but checked his other 3 posts first. They are legit bonsai related, so I think this one may just be a badly thought out response to the title and on another topic entirely?
