I find the dainty short-lived delicate mushrooms to be very charming.
I think the best way to describe this little orange fungi is: gregarious.
Many of these jelly mushrooms are edible, but look at this thing: would you want to eat THIS?
Don't eat me! I am not magical!
The little kid in me can definitely imagine a bunch of fairies sitting around this cup, enjoying whatever fairy libation fairies enjoy...
A purple gem on the forest floor. I knew that fungus can come in all sorts of amazing colors, but coming across them yourself is a completely different experience.
This one might actually get the prize for smallest mushroom I've found so far.
Just another jelly fungus that is totally edible and totally not palatable to me (at least visually!)
It's not every day you see a tiny mushroom growing right out of a leaf stem... definitely a first for me.
If I was making up the common name of this fungi, I would call it Pearly Puffball.
