amazing sequence. Your photography on your other observations is equally impressive. Great job!

Beautiful observation Steve!

I agree that the large fungus is probably Dacryopinax. I’ve seen Dacryopinax spathularia that look just like the large fungus in your observation.
That sounds like a good way to go

I wouldn’t mind making money from the videos, but I just do it as an amateur. There’s not a lot of money in fungus.

Okay, so you are a professional! Fantastic collection of scenery and time-lapse of fungi on vimeo! Thanks so much for the link!

Not sure that those spores are for that slime mould, Rocky. Maybe, but they were there before it came along.
Jonathon – yes, I read that it is more likely the other way around.

Brilliant video, Steve. It looked like Sporangia were forming at the end. Thanks for sharing that.

would be to post it to youtube and provide a link to it on MO. There is undoubtedly a better way. I have not done this – but my kids have…,

How do I do that?
