Mushrooms on a sunny day.

Nature is beautiful. Even the parts we prefer to avoid. Often mushrooms are poisonous, or found in dark, moist, stagnant places. We avoid them for our own safety. And yet, they are beautiful. I was lucky enough to observe this fungal gathering on a particularly sunny day. The juxtaposition of light and dark, both physical and metaphorical, makes me smile.
