Mushrooms After Rain

Nature is constantly shifting and not just with the normal seasonal changes these days. I would certainly welcome the respite of fewer distractions on my morning walks in Menotomy Rocks Park (Arlington, Massachusetts, USA), but nature had its own ideas. After abundant rain all summer, amazing fungi were popping up everywhere and calling out for me to take their portraits.

I had to crouch down and sometimes moved into contorted positions to capture their details up close. I even managed to capture light falling on what looked like spores being released from one cluster (see the last photo below). My normally hour-long walks extended to two or more hours and I was off on another adventure, learning about how important fungi are to us and many other forms of life on this planet.
