Fomes fomentarius, the "Hoof Fungus" or "Tinder Conk" mushroom.

From Wikipedia:
"This species, as well as others, such as Phellinus igniarius, can be used to make amadou. Amadou is produced from the flesh of the fruit bodies. The young fruit bodies are soaked in water before being cut into strips, and are then beaten and stretched, separating the fibres. The resulting material is referred to as 'red amadou' [that's the material Paul Stamets' hat is made of].
.
The fungus is also known to have been used as a firestarter in Hedeby [Viking settlement that existed in Germany between the 8th and 11th centuries], and it is known that the fungus was used as early as 3000 BCE. When found, the 5,000-year-old Ötzi the Iceman was carrying four pieces of F. fomentarius fruit body. Chemical tests led to the conclusion that he carried it for use as tinder."

  • Guys, I’m already getting nostalgic. 😢
.
This is from one of the last photo shoots I’ll likely ever do with my first professional camera, the Canon t7i, as I’m about to upgrade to a Sony mirrorless. The Canon gear is probably getting sold, which makes me a little sad, but Sony lenses are NOT cheap. 😬

  • As mankind expands further into the forests 🌳 of Costa Rica, destroying natural habitats, unfortunately sloths, primates 🙈, and many other 🐊 native species have been negatively impacted 🥺. @greentiquewildliferefuge.cr has been fortunate enough to be able to provide sanctuary for many of these refugees when relocation is necessary. Together with the @theslothinstitute and @toucanrescueranch we hope to make life easier for Costa Rica's wildlife to thrive.💯🇨🇷😘 #sloth #monkey #crocodile #love #costarica

The deforestation around Wilpattu National Park has become a hot topic in Sri Lanka during the past couple of days 🇱🇰

It's great to see that the community is spreading the word on social media and raising awareness regarding the forest vandalism which is still happening in a major way🙅🏽‍♂️

  • CURLY PT.3 (and a pooey nose)

This is the last of the photos of the cows at Temple Newsham, Leeds.

There's something nice about seeing the curly-haired huge beings in a field rather than in animal prison. 
When I was leaving I saw a big bin bag trapped in the barbed wire trimming on the fence where the cows were, so I ripped it off and took it away with me. 
I like to think they knew I was doing them a favour by moving the noisy, rustling bag away, and not letting them eat the dangerous floaty thing, but I suspect that they did not care one bit. Still my mates though.
