#iArtDaily Challenge Day 29
“I draw inspiration from the transcendence of the natural world.” ~ Mandy Thompson, visual artist, creator, entrepreneur
I took this photo last fall in my backyard under the oak tree. As near as I can tell it is a Russula rugulosa, faded by rain and sunlight.
Mushrooms are amazing creatures, with so many health properties (the non-poisonous ones anyway!); and even though they are rather fragile, they possess the ability to thrive where other plants don’t: often where it’s dark and damp. They’re beautiful, too.
Here are more photos I took several years ago at Morningstar Adventures in Leroy … I love photographing them.
