Coming Up in the World - A Day in the Life of a Mushroom
 
5 Attachment(s)
These are stages in the life of a mushroom (#2-6 and 8 are the same mushroom). Mushrooms are actually spore-bearing fruiting bodies; the actual organism (the mycelium) is below ground, much longer lived, and produces many mushrooms. These "mini-mushrooms" last only about 12 hours from eruption to dessication - they release their spores and then quickly wilt. These appear mostly at night and are gone by or shortly after dawn, but a few individuals seem off schedule and are up for all or part of the daytime. The seedlings are California Poppies, and the little "caps" holding the leaves together at the tips on some of them are the seed coats that have not yet been shed. K20D and Tamron 90mm macro plus built-in flash.

Would be cool to make a collage, with 7 in the middle, and the rest around the border?

Thanks Hards80 and GW - glad you found them to your liking.

I added a note about the seedlings at the end of the description at the top of the thread.

That would work - it is the way life cycles are often presented in textbooks. Thanks for looking and commenting.

Great illustration of a fascinating life history - and very well photographed as well!

Very neat shots!

Nice series and a fine and interesting description of the life cycle. I also like the iridescent look to the first few.
