fairy town

I photographed these magical little toadstools at Hollard Garden with the other autumn colors in my last post. Every time I see a them, I feel the urge to write a children's story about a tiny, little world. Alas, I am not disciplined enough to do it; so I settle for taking some macro shots.








Before you start nit-picking about my choice of words, there is no difference between mushrooms and toadstool, although the term 'toadstools' has gradually become applied to toxic types. http://www.patient.co.uk/doctor/Mushroom-and-Toadstool-Toxicology.htm and http://knowledgenuts.com/2014/01/05/difference-between-toadstools-and-mushrooms/

Lovely macro photos of these mushrooms. They may not be edible, but they are not toadstools, I think.

Isn't it just like a tiny magic world?!? As a photographer also, I chucked knowing how you were probably laying on your tummy to get these shots!

Beautiful shots! I can see why these photos inspire you to want to right a children's story of a small wonderland. Hopefully you will get started :-)
