@softthyla submitted: Any idea who this teeny tiny friend might be? They were maybe three millimeters long so getting a good picture was difficult, but it looked like they had a tiny little furry tuft peeking out from under their wings. Found on a bus near Portland, Oregon
Best guess without seeing it closer is a twenty-spotted ladybug infected with the parasitic fungus, Laboulbeniales, which is the fuzziness you see. It is quite common in ladybugs! It’s often transmitted during mating and the fungus itself doesn’t generally kill the beetle, but it can impair them enough to shorten their life if it’s particularly dense.
Hi (0w0) dibuje un hongo de nuevo jsjsjs, (QwQ) no lo puedo evitar ✨🌻
Day 3!!! I’m behind, but with a break day in sight, I’ll be caught up in no time! I hope you guys like this little cutie :^) The Yellow Houseplant mushroom isn’t something I’ve dealt with in my daily life, but I wouldn’t be opposed or upset by it.

Rock beard lichen
Usneas are delighful. If you tug on their little branches (gently), you’ll find that they are springy! Due to the tightly compacted fungal-hyphae that makes up its main structure. And I feel like you can see how tightly wound U. amblyoclada is just but looking at it poking straight out from vertical rock surfaces. This shrubby-looking little lichen has divergent branches that grow up to 10 cm long in bushy bunches. The surface of the long, thread-like lobes are covered in small fibrils, and even smaller soredia. It can be found in southern North America and southern South America, where it typically grows on rock in canyons and shaded areas between 200 and 2530 m elevation. Hanging out there on cliffs--ready to spring!

.. we just missed a beautiful pants design on my part. ( It's not NSFW thing so don't worry it's not the intention. )
I had the laziness of desperation to draw the bottom, I couldn’t put Fungus on Hazza’s lap. R.I.P the white pants and shoes I would have made a designer complaint. It is another passage from the RP, Fungus tells Hazza d'Ur that he is in love with him, that he is the first to know his Homosexuality because he has hidden it all his life, that he has suffered a lot from it. Hazza no longer wanted to approach Fungus because of his orientation, but the mage who never gives up managed to establish a dialogue with the sorcerer, telling him his story, approving "that he does not know what it feels like to live his whole life like this, dating women when he’s always loved men ". Hazza ends up acceding to the request of Fungus, who promised him that if he felt nothing or if it did not make any effect on him, he would leave him alone.Mage then spends a privileged moment with the man he loves, falling even more in love with him at each kiss, every word convinces that they are alike & the same...
