    LOOK AT ALL THESE MUSHROOMS I FOUND (and the elusive Aminita!). I plan to go out tomorrow and find some more. There were some awesome ones on trees too, but.. they were on trees. I may just photograph those ‘cause there was this type that looked like bat ears and they jiggled when you poked them.

    The Mystical World Of Mushrooms Captured In Photos

    Most people consider mushrooms to be the small, ugly cousins of the plant kingdom, but theirs is  surprisingly beautiful and wonderful world waiting to be explored. These beautiful mushrooms, captured by enthusiastic nature photographers, are a far cry from the ones you find in the woods or your local grocery store.

    Most mushrooms, as we know them, are actually just the reproductive structure of the fungus they belong to – their fungal networks expand far further underground, and some fungi don’t even sprout the sort of mushrooms that we’re used to seeing. In fact, depending on your definition of “organism,” the largest living organism in the world is a fungus – there’s a honey mushroom colony in Oregon that occupies about 2,000 acres of land!

    A glimpse at the contents of Masaaki Yuasa’s Sketchbook for Animation Projects (Amazon JP). I took pictures of some of the art work from Mind Game, Kemonozume, Cat Soup, and Crayon Shin-chan. It’s a really massive book (400 pages), and each series is printed on a different colored page to make it easier to flip to the right section!
