PHOTOS: Rainy afternoon at the Beals Preserve

The sun peeked through late Sunday afternoon after a what was a gray, rainy weekend. It didn’t last long, but there was enough time after the Patriots game for a family walk through Southborough’s Beals Preserve.

I only had my cell phone camera with me, but I was compelled to capture some of the early fall scenes before the raindrops returned. The most intriguing sight was the purple-edged fungus growing among moss at the base of a tree. Anyone know what kind of fungus it is?

Beautiful pictures Susan! I have always loved mushrooms, both for eating and admiring. I am going to put on my amateur mycologist’s cap and suggest that those may be “Panus conchatus”.
It looked close in one of my books, and here is a link:
I too, will look forward to anyone else’s thought’s.

Might they be Trametes versicolor, commonly known as turkey tail mushrooms?
