Artist’s Conk

Artist's Conk

While I was in Alaska, I got interested in the area botany.  I spent a solid few days taking photos of the local plantlife before stopping at the Homer Bookstore to buy an identification guide.  It turns out the names of Alaskan coastal plants are as awesome as their shapes.  This fungus I found is called Artist’s Conk.

Something about the combination of this name and shape seems particularly captivating.
