Xylaria sp., Rio Ñambi, Colombia
Assumed a Xylaria "Dead man's fingers" type of species.
Some interesting timing: a little after this photo was taken, when returning from our hike in the direction of the lodge, a forest giant fell. I first thought it was an earthquake, surely it was the loudest sound I've ever heard, even though it was at least 1.5km away from us. As the few dozen tons of weight was falling, the ground trembled.
We forgot all about that until the next day on our way out of Rio Ñambi, our path was blocked by this giant fallen tree. Guess where it fell? Exactly at this place where I spent a good 10 minutes messing with lighting to get this shot.
Moral of the story: the only time is NOW :)
