Default Flora--Kansas Style

The area where I live experienced an unusual phenomenon this past summer--fairy rings. These are naturally occurring due to a peculiar set of circumstances. The grass becomes intensely green (another type causes the grass to die) with mushrooms growing around the edge of the circle. They can continue to get larger and larger with the entire perimeter of the circle lined with mushrooms, although the ones we had didn't last too long. Some of the mushrooms were quite large while they lasted!

Very interesting (love learning about new things). The second picture of the mushroom is very cool - love good fungi pictures showing fins (if they have them). So delicate.

Hi Angie,

Interesting explanation about fairy rings as well as the photo. I'd heard about them sometime ago but, never really saw a photo.

Love the perspective of the 2nd shot.


So you want to be a better photographer? Open your eyes and take a look at what is all around you.

For a moment I thought you were going to start a whole new set of rumors about crop circles.

As others have noted that second shot is a winner. The low angle and fine details really makes it spectacular.
