They had started the attack

I always like to indulge myself in day dreaming, so much so that I saw mushrooms parachuting from nowhere and making their landing at Cerok Tokun this morning.

They must be on a secret mission.

They landed on a slope,

They then moved up the slope trying to look for cover,

and finally hid themselves behind a piece of leaf.

"Why do they follow me to Cerok Tokun?

What is their secret mission? Are they going to study who I am; whether I am a fake philosopher a hiker an adventurer a dreamer a photographer a silly little old man....?

"Ahhh...........!!!!!!"

They had started the attack.

------------------------------

"Where am I?"

"Where are all the mushrooms?"

It is a shock to find both of

my

my legs are having fungal infection. The mushrooms have implanted themselves into my body; they are going to have an in-depth study on me.

How am I going to explain this to my doctor?

It definitely looks like a mushroom invasion, rainfield...now, if they're the edible variety, I can figure out a few things I'd like to do with them as soon as possible!!

Fungi are the natures way of claiming what is ultimately its property....evrything arises from dust and returns to dust...

On land they are mushrooms, when they have a mission in the ocean, they can be jellyfish.

You have plenty of mushroom there for the invasion! You don't have it too bad!

Beautiful pictures, Rainfield!

Hmmm, I thought they are a group of tiny almost-invisible men walking under the scotching sun, each holding identical umbrella... Orang Bunian maybe? ~bangchik

Rainfield this is serious. U alone must protect the world from this mushroom attack. I give u moral support but not financial. I have no money :)

George said...

You must be a spy to get these great pictures of the mushroom invasion. I hope you can get the information needed to defeat this invasion.

betchai said...

oh, i definitely feel like I am day dreaming, these mushrooms look like parachute and had a massive landing in your area, wonderful Rainfield.

CH said...

You are damn crazy. I do not know how to measure your craziness.

wenn said...

fungal infection got to be treated immediately..

Cheryl said...

Wow, I have never seen such an invasion. I imagine they landed very softly and then crept up to you!

ruthi said...

hahaha... so funny. you really cracked me up. The first photo really looks like tiny parachutes. But the last paragraph gave me goosebumps... you are so good in putting words together... to graphic for me... I couldn't even look at your legs in my imagination will all the mushrooms sticking out your legs... so gross. yikes.

Ginnymo said...

Ha! Ha! You have been watching too many Science Fiction movies Rain! But I do enjoy your little stories. The photos are neat also.

Ratty said...

I've seen this kind of thing happen before. You are turning into a mushroom! You got some great pictures, but you paid a terrible price to get them.

Grass said...

To counter, eat them all up...:-)

They were ready have a party but someone tipped them off to an uninvited guest? Fungus crasher! Looks just like they parachuted down the mountain:)

Rainfield, you are being invaded by parachuting mushrooms. Take cover. Awesome photos and a funny story.

Life Ramblings said...

wow, hope they will not be able to destroy your territory. good luck.

Sharkbytes (TM) said...

Too funny! Except I hope not the part about fungus in your legs. Indeed, the doctor might not accept the parachute invasion theory.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

They have invaded you and your mind. You are on a psychedelic mushroom trip :D Fantastic shots, my friend.

Ann said...

I see it is the German invading, from my big brother's comic book. I must take out my Aussie photos, I remember seeing lots of white M & M on the trek.

Post them to you for Scenic Sunday.

If I was in Malaysia, they would have retired me. That's how old I am. The retirement age is 55 right?

The Retired One said...

I just love your imagination...and the shots were amazing!!!!

AVCr8teur said...

The tiny mushroom creatures are coming to attack the giants. You have discovered their secret!

Ayie said...

That's a lot of mushrooms! Have you seen smurfs around?

Mei Teng said...

Those tiny mushrooms looked like little flying "aliens".

Tes said...

Wow, I agree with the title, Rainy. At first glance you would think the mushrooms resemble and army of Vietnam soldiers in their traditional rice-field-hats, about to ambush some enemies...

Harumi said...

You sure did make them appear scary with your story. =D

Awesome shots of a mushroom colony!
