The black and white photo?

Photo is too small to tell but I don't believe the black and white one (middle, left) is a fungus. I'd like to see a bigger version. It reminds me of Indian Pipes (Monotropa)

Cool, I'll have to get some shots of CO 'shrooms. August is the season, we'll see lots of Boletus Edulis (Porcini, King Bolete, etc), Amanita Muscaria (Fly Agaric), Chantrelles, Yellow Corals, and many more. This year should be pretty good for the 'shrooms, lots of moisture.

I do believe that you are correct. This grows in my parent's wooded yard and I always go out and have a look for it. It's actually a plant without chlorophyll.

The first picture is something that was growing in my parent's yard, not sure what it was but a bright lime green about the size of a football. Never saw it before nor after this year. Shame, quite beautiful.

The second picture is called sulphur shelf that I saw out while riding. It's also called 'chicken of the woods http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sulphur_shelf as it's edible and quite tasty or so I'm told, haven't yet tried it. It's not unusual to see it in the north woods.

I like this thread, thanks for posting it.
