Gymnosporangium juniperi-virginianae - Cedar-apple rust fungus - Carrot like shapes emerging from a small cone on this cedar tree. The fungus overwinters inside, then the orange jellylike "horns" grow out in the spring and produce spores in the apple.
Toadstool with Frost Flowers - It is as beautiful as it is rare. A frost flower is created on autumn or early winter mornings when ice in extremely thin layers is pushed out from the stems of plants or occasionally wood. This extrusion creates wonderful patterns which curl and fold into gorgeous frozen petioles giving this phenomenon both its name and its appearance.
