Fungi persist and alter...

Here's an interesting scene on the Oak Ridges Trail in King.  A tree that once stood upright and had  dark hoof fungi growing on it, died and fell to earth where it lay on its side for an undetermined length of time.   Given the passage of time, new lighter-coloured hoof fungi grew on the decaying trunk.  But the newer fungi were at right angles to the older ones.  The change in the tree trunk's position, from vertical to horizontal, made the difference.   Ahhh... the variability and adaptability of nature.
