    A few years back I was out with my dog Trig and saw a fantastic mushroom nestling in the leaves. The only way i could get a good shot was to lay down flat on my belly. Trig saw this as an opportunity to climb onto my back and lick the top of my head. I was too busy taking the picture to shoo him off or notice the family walking through the woods untill it was too late.

    They never said a word, Trig never stopped and they just hurried past. How we suffer for our art!

    beautiful- how id love to stroll there instead of being cooped inside with assignments on a already muggy day though its only 9am....failing being able to really escape there this is a wonderful refresh for mind and eyes

    I love Arizona but you are making me homesick for the forest I grew up in. I can almost smell autumn looking at these.

    Ah yes, the fungi shapes around which the faeries and pixie play or dance or hide. Put the graphic in graphic novels.

    In an old mainstream Saturday morning American cartoon, I think it was the She-Ra series out of I think Filmation Studios in California, some of the more impish layout artists would make the shapes a little more suggestive. . . out of creative boredom perhaps. And the painters painted it as drawn, since that was their job. And it got filmed without question, since that was their job. The joke came to everyones attention only when a letter or two arrived from the viewers. And I think they had to thin back down the stalks in later episodes (if the show even ran that long).

    Gotta love them mush-a-roomy-rooms. This being photography, you are above reproach, Fraser-P.

    Nice to see some British woodland Whereabouts did you take these? I grew up in the peak district (North Stafforshire) and now live in Suburban Birmingham - not quite so much woodland here - but we are close the Worcestershire Clent Hills
