A Slimy Green Mushroom

Things when get overdone may turn out to be out of control. This happened exactly when I was picking up the fallen leaves hoping for a clean depth of field. A magazine told me so.


I broke the root of a brittle and slimy mushroom. Its neck broke when I continued further, that ended its already very short life cycle. This was not cautioned in the magazine.




Then this is my next discovery, a beauty that was good to be observed in a distance. This second chance is sweet, only that the first mushroom has been made a guinea pig.

You got a lovely picture to commemorate this mushrooms short life! And now you know to be more careful when you're moving those leaves. So the mushroom did not die in vain. Thank you for sharing both these beauties. And your thoughts. Which I always enjoy as much as I do your beautiful photos.

So many varieties of mushrooms in your life. In the markets, I see only a few. Of course, I'm not trekking in a jungle.
