Beech Woodwart Fungus

From a early April this year: beech woodwart fungus, Hypoxylon fragiforme

I am not sure what the small red particles are: they could be the spores of the fungus, or they might just be something else that happens to be living on the fungus.  [Note added 2012-02-19: they could be Nectria episphaeria, see here.]
