Flamingos of Mushrooms


We got a few days of downpours that not only washed away haze, but also awakened many little sexy pink mushrooms.

They were so tiny to be appreciated. When forming a colony, they became my miniature flamingos of mushrooms.



They danced in partnership and performed courtship rituals along the shore line, I assumed.  I stopped, and I admired.

As though I was at Lake Nakuru enjoying the most fabulous bird spectacle in the world.

Bei uns habe ich noch keine Pilze entdeckt, es wird wohl noch ein bisschen dauern. Die auf den Fotos habe ich noch nie gesehen...

Podoba mi się Twój pomysł porównania malutkich grzybków do tańca ptaków. Masz świetną wyobraźnie. Pozdrawiam.
I like your idea of ​​comparison, tiny mushrooms dancing birds. You have a great imagination. Yours.

Imagination gives us great experiences. I can see the pink dancing, courting birds. Also looking mushroom caps as thin layer, brittle leaves. Nicely photographed and well seen!
