There is something fascinating about the way some things can grow from a tiny invisible spore to be large and very noticeable within of a few hours or overnight! I am referring to toadstools, mushrooms and other types of fungi. And, as if that wasn’t enough, in another day or two, they have disappeared again! Some even glow in the dark during their brief life!
These characteristics probably explain why they feature so prominently in fairy stories and other magical tales.
This beautiful example of a toadstool was just too exquisite not to photograph. I love the softness of the gills and the perfection of the whole underside of the cap. (Sadly, it was not one of those that glows in the dark – I have yet to come across one of those!)
This is my contribution to the weekly photo challenge: Growth. Many other wonderful entries can also be found on the latter site.
