Artist's Bracket - 2
A near-perfect specimen of Ganoderma applanatum, which goes by many common names around the world such as artist's conk, artist's bracket, artist's fungus and bear bread. It gets it's name from the white pore-covered underside of the fruiting body (the shelf-like structure that's visible) that can be scratched off with a stick, and has been used as a "canvas" for drawings and writing for centuries. This one was found in rural Levy County, Florida in Goethe State Forest on a beautiful mid-November morning.
