Under and Up


It is the end of mushroom season. It is getting way too cold for them to survive, and it actually has been quite dry for about a week now. But this picture is one of my favorites, and went well with ABC Wednesdays "U" theme today. I had never seen a mushroom like this one, and have not since.

In order to get under the mushroom you must be a wee lass.

The subject was unknown to me until you said it - I've never seen a mUshroom from that view. Impressive and wonderful!

Great shot! The under belly of a mushroom, eh? Who'd have thought of it. Not me:)

Beautiful shot! It's so easy to walk right by mushrooms and not notice them. They try to blend in too well.
