The Delegate

Posted by
Spike (not Bristol, United Kingdom) on 27 October 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This is the edge of a patch of tiny inkcap mushrooms - at least 2m in diameter, covering the ground-down stump of a felled tree. I just managed to get this image before someone's labrador gallumphed through it all and started trying to lick my face. Not sure if that's better or worse than a yapping terrier... *sigh!*

Anyway, when I turned back to the viewfinder, the little mushroom in the foreground had been well and truly smooshed. So it goes...

Thanks for stopping to take a look.
