Re: the beauty of C.O.D.I.T

i especialy like image two showing the "artifacts" ie origional compartmentalisation being broken via a boring insect leaving the host and allowing the decay fungus to breach into a new section. That new section will probaly become the diametre of the decay colum at a later date. great images.

Re: the beauty of C.O.D.I.T

Interesting how wall three (2nd shot) isn't showing much terminal discolouration along either side of the ray cells, on the outer second breach.
Wonder if the spread was still very active?


Love uncovering what lurks within.......
HC from last week.
