Tracked down in woods in Sweden, around 1m from the ground, generally 20cm in size. Hard to the touch, however, dribbles fluid when thumped

Overflowing overabundance water
Today, I’m having some time off from posting pictures taken in Waterton Lakes Public Park, and on second thought adding three photographs taken yesterday (23 July 2015), nearer to home. Five of us went through the day botanizing the land having a place with Darryl Teskey, SW of Calgary and SW of Millarville (perhaps a 40-minute drive from the city). This was whenever I first had been there and I’m so happy I went – I would have missed a few growths, including this and two other Red-belted polypore/Fomitopsis pinicola (?) and their lovely guttation drops. Much appreciated so a lot, Karel, for bringing me over to take a gander at these. Filled my heart with joy!

“A few organisms are inclined to showing an inquisitive peculiarity — they ooze dabs of dampness, called guttation. In a few polypores, for example, Fomitopsis pinicola, the fluid created can look such an excess of like tears that you’d swear the organism was sobbing. Or on the other hand perhaps perspiring. Different species produce pigmented drops that can seem to be milk, or tar, or even blood.”

“Guttation, a term utilized in organic science to depict the cycle by which plants discharge overabundance water through drops from their leaves. For certain mushrooms this is normal to such an extent that it is a dependable ID highlight.”

Luckily, the downpour remained away until we began driving back to Calgary. A considerable amount of dark mists, helping me to remember the cyclone that went through Calgary (counting my local area that was in its way) simply the other day (22 July 2015).

Our walk took us over meadow and through timberland, wherever slippery with such countless fallen logs which were frequently scarcely noticeable. I have never under any circumstance seen so many little Captain butterflies – there probably been hundreds or even a huge number of these radiant orange marvels that were flying or roosted on blossoms of each and every variety. Our motivation, as usual, was to find and rundown all that we saw – wildflowers, trees, grasses, birds, bugs, organisms, and so forth.. Our chief then gathers a broad rundown of every one of our finds and this is subsequently shipped off the landowner, alongside any photographs that we could take. Continuously a mutually beneficial arrangement, as the landowner then, at that point, has a vastly improved thought of exactly what is on his property – and we have a most charming day. This mid year, with so many botanizing excursions like this, in addition to two 3-roadtrips to Waterton Lakes Public Park, I am so behind with the photographs that I want to alter and email!
