Have you ever just come across something during an inspection that you'd never seen before? I was inspecting a home this morning and found this on the railing to the deck. I got rid of the background so as to focus on the subject. Any guesses? Fungi?http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3236/2800291345_107454b042.jpg
