Who's Looking At You?

Two calves in the field in front of the ruins of Largo House. I think they'd spotted us walking along the road and they obligingly posed for their photo.

Fungi - Serpentine Walk

Fungi, possibly honey fungus (Armillaria mellea) at the base of a very large beech tree in the Serpentine Walk.
A diseased part of the trunk of the same beech tree. The pinkish coloured growth is possibly a canker.

Large saucer sized fungi growing in the grass in the Serpentine Walk. Could possibly be Brown roll-rim (Paxillus involutus).
