21.05.2015 it is time for one more picture page or gallery, this one must be a bit different than number 13
My bike is getting old, i usually bring a Multi-Tool along because it goes very well with a bicycle. I also bring a pump. On my bike there are many points and combinations tools are smart. The hex opening can be used for bits...
It is easy to make a pack of bits that would make it possible for repair on the road if needed.
as said there are many more points on my bicycle....It is smart to do a small check before use but one never now when you must adjust a gear or other on the road. Things happen..
Also smart to bring is repair kit if you get a puncture. If the hole is very small then it can be enough to pump air in periods to get home. Something to bend of the tire is smart also. Today one can get plastic ones too. Also quick sollution material for puncture as well......
here is a simple " Fish bat" 26cm long and made of heavy wood (oak).My design is simple and effective. Medium surface and just oiled so it will not slip. I recommend using heavy wood. A good hit with this will work well. A fish twist and turn so i use this before the knife.
here is an interesting shape, to me it looks like a being coming out of the tree that eats a Polyporaceae :)
The beech forrest at Søm
What do you see? See the next Picture and i will tell what i see...
I see human shape in the root coming to life. On the back stretching with the head leaning backwards
24.05.2015 hundekjeks(Anthriscus sylvestris) is an easy to find herb that is a bit poisonous, still it is and has been used for coloring and medicine. It is easy to find but also easy for people to confuse with some very dangerous ones.
stems and leaves on hundekjeks
excellent hideout :)
I believe this to be knuskkjuke(Fomes fomentarius)
Let me know if i am wrong....
old bird nest
25.05.2015 Really cool Polyporaceae!
26.05.2015 The mackerel has arrived, the feeling of getting six on the fishing rod at the same time is unbelievable fun. There is much small coalfish and some ok Pollock. Very nice day on the sea! I end the life on them right after the picture.
There are many pollock on this size now.
27.05.2015 Anthocharis cardamines
Anthocharis cardamines Aurorasommerfugl...
28.05.2015 This was on a dead spruce and it got pores and it was sticky to touch. At first it looked like a part of the log or tree. It seems to me that it is a fungi "Polyporaceae" I am not surprised if this is just a strange form on a type. Developed strange. Let me know :) Could it be a weird developed rødrandkjuke Fomitopsis pinicola? it feel like it or how they usually are under.
29.05.2015 rødrandkjuke Fomitopsis pinicola, see next
what is a jung example of Fomitopsis pinicola is not always so easy to distinguish. This could be one and it is on a small rotten log part of spruce, see next
i suspect this to be Fomitopsis pinicola
yesterday i found this that could be a jung Fomitopsis pinicola or something happened during the Development, i am not sure if the Brown color on it are jung? It would be a color after some time or what?
It is a real challenge to distinguish, i wonder if this is a jung ildkjuke Phellinus type, this is low on the tree but just a bove this is the next....
to me it looks like Phellinus what do you say? See next....
then high up on the tree is another Phellinus, out of reach of my camera. Above that is a woodpecker hole as well.
30.05.2015 Piptoporus betulinus, one extra large (left bottom)
rødrandkjuke Fomitopsis pinicola
rotkjuke Heterobasidion annosum ? I Wonder if this cause white rot like the Fomes fomentarius does?
Fomes fomentarius i believe
31.05.2015 I do not know yet what it is :)It is on a Birch log that is completely rotten
Here is one more on the same log and in better shape. Same white stem like the other. It could be a Polyporaceae. I know there is something called polyporus but i am not sure yet :)
03.06.2015 found this today. This is on a pine and that is interesting. It was 2 meter up on the log.Usually when you see a Polyporaceae the tree is dead. This tree is long gone and it is just the log standing with no branches or anything. I do wonder if this is a rødrandkjuke Fomitopsis pinicola on a pine! see next..
No guttation drops but very much moist underneath. Remember when you scan for any types that you look up and down and around, some are higher up...
What is interesting with Polyporaceae is the different scent or smell they got. The spores can be spread with the wind but also insects can spread the spores....Scent and colors can attract insects...
i do believe this is a Phellinus. It is old and very hard. Very dark top and it could be a Phellinus nigricans, let me know...
04.06.2015 it only took 15 minutes to get it today:) What should one do without knives!
05.06.2015 I believe this is duftkjuke Gloeophyllum odoratum and it got a good scent (anise) see next...
it is on a spruce root/stub
a bit older duftkjuke
This was on top of the same stub and i am not sure what Polyporaceae yet, it is on top of the stub and out of sight usually for people...
a nice example Fomitopsis pinicola, what do you see? see next pic
here is picture from the other side of the one i wondered about, it is just the shade and light that made it lighter in the color. It is also a duftkjuke Gloeophyllum odoratum, i recommend the scent, they got a strong anise scent!
06.06.2015 got this Movie today :) have not seen this yet, i am looking forward to this :)
remember to look under logs and reains of tree`s,
07.06.2015 an ant on Fomitopsis pinicola
used my bike up country and found this Polyporaceae that is not developed yet with an insect that probably is a Coccinellidae, remember insects and polyporaceae:)
Another rødrandskjuke, i have found logs with up to 30 on :)
there are clubs that Research Polyporaceae and i do believe what Tools they use :) Look at this rødrandkjuke that grows so strange.
08.06.2015 Torungen today. Today i caught a nice cod, some coalfish and mackerels. See next pictures for something cool also
This fell of a coalfish and i believe it is a isopod...
I am not sure but i Wonder if this isopod is a Aega type because of the eyes. They suck blood from fish. It did clamp on to my finger but i did not feel any bite. They say its been around for millions of years :) Let me know:)
09.06.2015 This should also be rødrandkjuker Fomitopsis pinicola, these are grown together :)
Found this little piece of antler
To distinguish and learn about Polyporaceae then go for the Fomitopsis pinicola and the tree`s they grow on. They are all different with a few characteristics. They do not always have red color but also, yellow, orange, blue, grey, black, white shades..For coloring they contain red brown pigments.
Fomitopsis pinicola cause brownrot on tree`s and timber. The scent is not comfortable but characteristic. They grow on Spruce, Birch, Pine, (coniferous and tree`s with leaves). They may get guttation drops
I believe this is a rødrandkjuke too on Birch. They got a resin layer on top that melt from the flame from a matchstick. They may start as a lump on a tree and gradually take shape...
The terrain Fomitopsis pinicola: They grow out when the tree is dead. On standing tree`s, roots/stubs, fallen trees`s and on small parts on the ground. 360 degrees on standing or fallen logs. Some grow high up on a standing log. Easy to find in wet forrest area and marsh. Especially on rotten logs.
Some Polyporaceae look like a mess when forming and in this case i believe it is a rødrandkjuke again:) they spread their spores by wind birds and insects. Some insects eat fungi and Polyporaceae. A small spore can hit a small opening in the bark and then the tree may be infected. They are also part of the Natural eco system in the nature...
Rødrandkjuke got many Medical abilities and i Wonder if it harvest some of the abilities of a tree??. These i have shown before, they grew correct but are now upside down because another tree broke the log down. Rødrandkjuker helps for a dead tree to fall down as well. The tree`s on my island and the forrest are healthy but it seems to me the Polyporaceae on the sea coast got a dialect or charateristics compared to the upcounty ones.
Some collect and take home Polyporaceae and use them. Sometimes you can bend them off but sometimes they can be attached hard and one would damage it. A large saw and knife on a Multi-Tool or SAK is very helpful, Also an awl for Research! I leave them on for others to enjoy as well.
if you want to make paper them a small knife blade can be used also. A pruner/Harvester blade can be used for picking Polyporaceae and fungi. A light pry tool can also be useful.
Sometimes you will find fungi parasites that lives on a Polyporaceae, could be in this case not 100% sure. If you want to dry a Polyporaceae then do it in the sun. The rays from the sun starts a process in them.
In the early process the infection from Polyporaceae can cause colorations in wood that makes it special for some applications. Beautiful colorations and structures can be seen in the wood.
10.06.2015 Train today when on my bicycle
probably a musevåk Buteo buteo, next camera i will have one with proper zoom and lenses to change. Maybe next year :)
i am not sure if the small antler is from a small moose but i believe so, if not it is deer. Take a good look at the picture and imagine what it resembles! Then look at the next pic.
11.06.2015 Nice cod today, it will be light salted and boiled. Outside Merdø on hook with bait.
Caught some mackerels too today.
13.06.2015 Båke (marker) Picture from 11.06.2015 Skuteholmen
14.06.2015 what do you want to grab to research Polyporaceae? There are many fields and types. I am more and more amazed by ancient people and how they could use the nature.
did the planets in our system once had a different place. Was the Earth affected by a huge object and the collective memory in humans remember it as a serpent in the sky :) Natrix natrix on the picture hiding its head, it is a very good swimmer and eat fish + more
15.06.2015 In just two weeks the rim is getting very yellow. At first i wondered if its been scratched or it is just a growth zone. I still believe it is a rødrandkjuke, the scent is so but not easy to be sure. The top is getting a bit more matt. I do not want to scratch or do test it further yet. The yellow is the lemon color and it made my day :)
16.06.2015 extra large mackerel today 1 kg, i was hoping to get 6 of these at the same time :)
it is a male
I am bit surprised on how rapid the surface changes on Polyporaceae. I am folowing these two :)
20.06.2015 Fomes fomentarius on Birch....some incects also
21.06.2015 I am once again surprised on how fast the Polyporaceae surface and Development changes.
26.06.2015 took 21 mackerels today in just a few minutes + a nice cod
at this time of year it is smart to salt it for two days and boil, then it is very good
27.06.2015 i am glad i found such a nice example, Flatkjuke ( Ganoderma applanatum ) see next pictures..
It and the part of the log is absoluetely powdered with spores..
Did you know that flatkjuke is known as The Artists conk because the part under can be used for drawings and art :)
04.07.2015 I am looking forward reading this. This book is written by one of the greatest minds.
07.07.2015 I find Immanuel Velikovskys theory very interesting. I do wonder if spores can travel in Space. From meteores, comets or planets.......On the picture today you see the Development on the Polyporaceae...
I do believe it is rødrandkjuke(Fomitopsis pinicola)
08.07.2015 How cool is that!
09.07.2015 Caught 30 mackerels today, it did not take long. Hit a large shoal and all the hooks full several times. There are few fishes that give such energy in the human body.
Many fish for mackerels with just a sinker on the bottom. I use a large lure or a 200-250 gram pilk. I suspect the mackerel to bite because it seems other fishes are eating on something. Or look for fish that behave strange. The eye is very important on a lure!! It attracts and tricks
10.07.2015 Blueberry time, very good for the heart..
All i do is pick them, mash and use some sugar and then you have a wonderful jam...
12.07.2015 Dryocopus Martius woodpecker
also today i found a butterfly that i am not sure what is yet, see next pic
14.07.2015 Today out walking the dog i found this Slettesnok (Coronella austriaca) I have seen rather many lately...
16.07.2015 here it is again and there are something changing again + some nice colors in the Sunlight.
18.07.2015 usually when i find a type of Polyporaceae then it is usually one type on a tree. For example a tree with only Fomitopsis pinicola or a tree with only Fomes fomentarius or only Piptoporus betulinus. I have seen a tree or the remains of a log with two types. I do believe this is the remains of a Piptoporus betulinus and a Fomes fomentarius on the left.(on Birch) see next 5 pics
here is what i believe is a small Fomes fomentarius...
also a Fomes fomentarius with some size and the nature has made a depicted shape underneath it with the pores.
It must have been the squirrel eating on a cone..
very close i found this and it must be a woodpecker and or the squirrel working.
and i could not resist checking up on this again :)
Heterobasidion annosum or Fomitopsis pinicola ?
26.07.2015 Fomes fomentarius and this is from a fallen down birch that i have shown before. Now i have some more info and i will explain my new impressions, see next 3 pictures..
I have talked some about Fomes fomentarius. It grows horizontally but when a tree falls it will be vertical, does it continue to grow like so or will it twist? To me it seems it will start to alter the level and as you see on the picture it may be so, see next
A tree may be completely dead when the fruit is shown. It will continue to grow when abrupted from the standing log and it fallen. It may have a mechanism that alter the level vertically/horizontally, is it gravity? Fomes fomentarius is a several year Polyporaceae and it causes rot in a tree.
27.07.2015 In mid-May 2015 i did show you this Fomes fomentarius on a log on the ground. Yesterday i explained how it is about to alter the Level to become horizontal again, see next
i am surprised again how rapid the change is. In only two and a half months
29.07.2015 This is interesting and i do believe it is a Aphyllophorales
30.07.2015 Today i used an old trick that i learned from my father. Looked for the seagulls flying in circles and diving. Took 10 minues to get the fishes. They got rewarded. Lovely warm weather today.
01.08.2015 Guttation drops can be on different Polyporaceae, common on Fomitopsis pinicola. This is on a Birch with several Fomes fomentarius i believe. I supect this is an early stage Fomes fomentarius, see next pic
i have shown in this picture gallery the Fomes fomentarius that are changing the Level, it is on the same log, maybe i must wait and see how this develops. They do not smell like Fomitopsis pinicola at all and everything suggest Fomes fomentarius. I am open for suggestions:)
The surface is gray and sticky....The nature on the island i live on is healthy but also because of the natural system there are many Polyporaceae. I have found more on this island than on a ten times larger area further up country...
A more traditional Fomes fomentarius and the early stage one on the back is no longer sticky but more normal surface, I suspect there are many variations and developments. i do believe there are many more possible variants depending on tree and environments. PS did you know they got year rings almost like tree`s.
Fomes fomentarius, the hoof shape or not there are no polyporaceae that grow completely the same...There are variations on any part of the fungi. Gray is not always correct..
02.08.2015 Fomitopsis pinicola with tears/guttation drops. My observations: before the resin layer on top and Development inside it will/may have tears all around. The tears will be golden/brown with age or both usually under..
it made my day:)
here is a very interesting one: it is on a spruce root and it is between the pudding towards formation i believe. There are several Fomitopsis pinicola further up. It got a pink shade and i wondered "Fomitopsis rosea" but Pinicola may also have a pinkish shade early on or is it something else?
03.08.2015 This i have checked before and today it had guttation drops. I have a feeling it is a Fomitopsis pinicola. It giot a weak pink shade so i do not believe it is Fomitopsis rosea. It is very low on a spruce root. It got a resin layer on top now. I am however not completely sure it is a Fomitopsis pinicola but i would not be surprised if it is one. See next two pics
I had to use the flash on this pic:)
Flash on this as well, interesting with the rim and the guttation drops. I know that Fomitopsis pinicola may have pink shade, that is difficult to get on camera. This Poliporaceae does have a stronger pink at times so i am not sure? It made my day:)
I am still following the Development on this Polyporaceae, Fomes fomentarius? :)
Here you can see the same one with Development from late May until 03.08.2015 Let me know:) I understand why a larger SAK is useful in Polyporaceae hunting, it is tempting to see inside and or read type and year rings:) For sure i have done some long time ago.
05.08.2015 One big Crab claw! I have tested their strength a long time ago and believe me you will feel it:)
Fomitopsis pinicola with tears
Fomitopsis pinicola, sometimes they will develop into a mess or strange shapes.
Probably Fomitopsis pinicola, notice the tears and the drop shaped holes. I have noticed that this have a pink shade. Rosea? Also a snail on the picture
Fomitopsis pinicola underside
06.08.2015 on our way home the Rescue wessel on its way.
caught 30 mackerels in record speed outside Torungen today
100 meters to starboard it was full of mackerels, could have taken much more. Some gray weather lately but perfect for fishing and no wind. Good temperature too.
also today i managed to get the best butterfly picture i have ever gotten, the colors are just unbelievable nice.
07.08.2015 Fomitopsis pinicola
Probably Fomitopsis pinicola on pine
here is this Fomitopsis pinicola again, i have shown from time to time the development and it is growing and it is like a chameleon:)
08.08.2015 This is interesting. It is relative large now. I wondered Trametes hirsuta or Trametes versicolor or? The weather is dry but it is kind of moist on top with the hairs. The pores or underside is dry and harder, see next picture
It is very decorative and picture nice
Now i wonder if this is revekjuke(Inonotus rheades) :) Let me know
10.08.2015 it was so nice and relaxed and enjoyed the weather it seemed :)
I have found this before and i still wonder. I found it again today and it is a large Polyporaceae. `The tree`s around are a mix. This grow on the remains of a tree that i am not sure what is yet, twisted tree. The first that i have in mind is Phellinus, not sure what type, i am a bit puzzled by this. Let me know:) fortell meg gjerne om du har info.
The bark is very worn and one could wonder?
11.08.2015 I have had this in mind and i do believe it is Eikeildkjuke Phellinus robustus. This i found got a beautiful color variation, blue,gray,purple shade:)
This i have seen before and it is large and flat. See next picture for underside
Not the best picture because i had to use the flash. As sad it is large..
i guess it is eikemusling Daedalea quercina
absolutely fascinating. I have noticed with Phellinus that they show on living tree`s. They can be on different tree`s and for example Phellinus cinerea can be on different ones as other Phellinus can. They cause white-rot. I have seen large tree`s with many Phellinus on a seemingly living tree. Type on pic is Phellinus? so far
It seems different insects are drawn towards Polyporaceae, ants, snails, beetles, flies and Oniscidea. It can be fore more reasons, like feeding, breeding and protection. This process would help the Polyporaceae to spread spores..Polyporaceae have different scents that may draw different insects.
13.08.2015 For Norway these are very large blueberries. This year they are the biggest that i have seen and very good:)
here is something interesting, there are a lot of such disruptions on the standing tree that is now dead. Some are larger higher up, Polyporaceae?
14.08.2015 Fomes fomentarius, they can grow together in strange formations, these have grown solid together from two separate parts. A birch in pieces but originated from the same tree:)
15.08.2015 Was at the Library today and in a bok "Norsk Urskog og gammelskog" I found what i was looking for about Fomitopsis pinicola! Hints: its brownrot remains can be stored for 500 years- forrest eco system-hold water- affect temperature shifts-CO2 removed by tree`s together with brownrot remains into the ground! Amazing! + more
i also found that there may be 3 different stages of fungi types working on a tree until it is completely gone. My info and other sources: On picture Fomes fomentarius that cause white rot on living tree`s. This tree is dead long time ago and it is just a small part above ground left. Fomitopsis pinicola cause brownrot on a dead tree "standing or fallen". It can infect and grow on a living tree!
I may be on Pluto but i believe and have found different Polyporaceae growing on a dead and living tree(seemingly) This is common. It is also normal to find a tree fallen with only Fomes fomentarius or Fomitopsis pinicola. I believe and have found information "that the Polyporaceae are only one stage", let me know if not? :) There is also a mechanism With the eco-system and nature that set what type that would be possible to infect a tree with.
17.08.2015 Fomitopsis pinicola, not far from where i live. Some guttation drops on the large one. On birch
First that always come to mind is Fomitopsis pinicola because it can grow on so many tree`s and it is close to other Fomitopis pinicola`s. Even if not on the same tree i know that they can start from a pudding of almost any shape. This has started to form and it is white. No scent yet. Fomitopsis pinicola is very common but it can fool both ways.
Fomitopsis pinicola, 123 :) The top one got a strange hat
18.08.2015 here is a set picture of Fomitopsis pinicola`s on Birch, it show different stages in development and formation.
This i also pictured yesterday and this is not on Birch itself but Birch Family and i am looking into what tree. It is a tree with leaves. The bark is very overdue and not much left of the wood.
Do you see the little elf hiding?
20.08.2015 Caught 40 mackerels today. Went out a bit early and the weather just fantastic. The sea was boiling with fish, could have taken much more. All sizes small, medium and larger so much good eating. Will hot smoke for sure.
Sawdust of Birch for smoking, extra fine. Different wood will give variations in flavour. Today i will salt the mackerel for some time(6-7 hours) only:) For sure you can make the sawdust yourself and experiment. Hot smoked mackerel is a completely new taste experience if you have never tasted before.
before hot smoking then rinse or wipe the salt off. This i hot-smoked for 25 minutes. Holy smoke:) salting and smoking will make it possible to freeze the fish. Pure mackerel meat is not good after freeze.
The birch made a variation for sure:) Ps did you know that Omega oil and mackerels enhance mental strength? yes it does. It helps rebuild the mind. At this time of year there is more fat in the larger mackerels and it is good stuff. I can feel that it helps the mind.
21.08.2015 Just outside the door "Papilionoidea"
22.08.2015 Out this evenening with family and i tested the fishing for fun and there are huge numbers of mackerels now, many smaller ones. So get out on the sea soon. Was lucky and i got a Lange. It is very good:)
on the way in the sunset
27.08.2015 Fungus :)
28.08.2015 I found a lying Birch log with over 100 Polyporaceae on. I believe it to be Fomes fomentarius. On the picture are two more examples of snails and Polyporaceae.
This made my day and i had it was kind of a moment in time. It looked first to have the same powder as on the Ganoderma applanatum, but not. Also Fomes fomentarius may be brownish. I believe this to be Fomitopsis pinicola, that said everything is strange and the color is actually brown gray. It seem so be resin layer. Let me know, see next pic
It was in the worst possible position for pictures and i had to use the flash( do not like it:) This is as close to my eyes as i could. What do you say?
29.08.2015 Just an example picture. Do you know why People look for different tree`s when searching for fungus on the ground? Living tree`s and fungus are dependent on each other. Fungus delivers nutrition and water to the tree and the tree delivers sugar for the fungus. The roots are connected under ground! How cool is that!
29.08.2015 beautiful Fomitopsis pinicola!
here is a Birch with Fomitopsis pinicola on the left and on the same tree to the right is a what many would say is a Fomes fomentarius, hmmm....
aha, have i found the Source of the weird Brown/gray Fomitopsis pinicola :)
and yes it is extra large..
30.08.2015 Fomitopsis pinicola :)
Fomitopsis pinicola :))
one more Fomitopsis pinicola
Fomitopsis pinicola :)
Fomitopsis pinicola again
probably Fomes fomentarius
31.08.2015 Fomitopsis pinicola :)
Same Fomitopsis pinicola :)
01.09.2015 Fomitopsis pinicola can like shown in this picture page 14 come in any form and no Fomitopsis pinicola looks the same. Guttation drops are common on them. It is one of the most beautiful polyporaceae. During its several years life they change the appearance greatly. It grows on most tree`s. The fruit is ùsually shown when a tree is completely dead. It can grow on a living tree also. Please read and see the picture page 14 complete because most of or all the pictures are connected into a complete
