I absolutely love to watch fungi. There is something artistic about them; their colours, their different shapes, their smell, the base they grow on and the many details they have. It is like a part of an alien species that appears year after year on earth, yet it is an ancient species – older than us, and they therefore have a much bigger claim on this planet than us. Not to mention the many wonderful qualities they have for biodiversity and micro life in the forest, something we humans can never compete with.
I will therefore dedicate this short post to beautiful fungi – whatever kind they may be; smelly, small, poisonous or weird-looking – it does not matter.
