Gymnosporangium clavariiforme (Cedar Apple Rust fungi)
This is an extroadinary beautiful fungi which I first started to notice last year when I was walking through Holme Stinted Pastures, near Burton In Kendal. It seems to take over some of the more ancient Juniper trees.
Yesterday (7th May 2021) I was again in the same area actually photographing Early Purple Orchids, although sadly these had been almost demolished with all the heavy rain we have had recently. Yet I did notice from a couple of the Junipers which were well spread out from one another that they bore the Gymnosporangium clavariiforme or the Cedar Apple Rust fungi. I would have estimated that the fungi was one to two days old at the best and would be gone within the period of the next couple of days. It does not last long and seems to disappear without trace.
Here are some of the photos from yesterday, I hope you enjoy. Please let me know if you want any further details.
