“Brains” on the Battlefield

Brain fungus

I saw this patch of fungus in front of Fredericksburg’s Stone Wall on Thursday afternoon. I couldn’t tell if it looked like a brain or a floral bouquet. In any event, it was fascinating enough to me that I figured I’d snap a picture and share.

I am always amazed at the variety of floral and fauna (and fungus) I see when I’m out on the battlefields–even here, essentially right out the front door of the battlefield visitor center. The battlefields continually offer us cool things to consider.
