A Grand Morning

Rain keeps on falling down. It is spreading the news about a photo shooting session over the other end of the bridge, and news spreads so fast in the community.

These mushrooms started to cross the bridge before my arrival. They of course need to leave very early as they move much slower than a snail. Their enthusiasm is clearly reflected when trying to overtake each other. It may look dangerous but is not actually.

That is not an easy path which requires up and down through the journey, nevertheless they think it worths bearing the grand event in mind.

They would like to be a potential celebrity in the cyberspace.

"The difference between try and triumph is just a little umph!", and this one is pushing its last "umph" before saying hi to me.

"Good morning my friend."

Then it is my turn for the rest of the work.

These mushrooms look so smooth, and translucent.

Your Ah Kung and my Ah Kung must have been friends. My Ah Kung said," Don't live near such thing, imagine the Japanese coming, the first thing they will bomb are the oil tanks, Indeed this was true in Sarawak, they bombed the Miri refinery first. LOL

The mushrooms look like flying saucers, UFOs. They also can be umbrellas or homes to some little people. If you are in Wonderland with Alice, you will grow taller and taller if your eat one.

They are gorgeous and in that macro setting with the dark background they almost look like little flying saucers. Very cool, Rainfield.

"The difference between try and triumph is just a little umph!", exactly. And the difference between awwwww... and awesome is... some-one like you.

Harumi said...

Just one 'umph', now that's something new. =D

These mushrooms are like tiny UFOs, and some of them look like bulls-eye eggs with sunny side up. You must be in Cerok Tokun's flying food restaurant. ^__^
