I had to stop and see if it was what I thought. And it was! A cascade of mushrooms rejoicing in the humidity and softness of the earth. Though I couldn't linger at the time, I felt a compelling urge to get up early the next morning and go see them up close. So I did.
Can you imagine being an ant, or a ladybug, waking up to this overnight change in the scenery?
This one looks as if it might take flight in a strong wind--
And these look happy basking in the sun.
Could those photos of the moon's surface really be closeups of mushrooms??
