I photographed these Tree Fungi while hiking the Ouachita National Forest here in Arkansas. The unknown type of insect on one of the fungi was just a bonus.
When fungal spores come in contact with a tree they begin to grow and feed on the tree. Not all the fungi that grow on a tree are harmful; some of them do not affect the tree at all while others are beneficial.
