I know next to nothing about mushrooms. The beauty above is probably a coral fungus. But don’t trust me, and in particular don’t eat one just because you have seen it here.

They grow with an astonishing speed, and take on shapes that range from gracile to monstrous. And they are usually gone after a few days.

Some look so strange that I don’t even know whether they are mushrooms.

The ones above were photographed with a macro lens. For the one below I didn’t have one, but I also didn’t need one.
