I stumbled upon this fascinating video and wanted to share it with the community.
Never knew there are mushrooms that actually glow in the dark, simply amazing!
The photography is incredible, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Youtube Description:

Stephen Axford has a unique expertise in macro images and time-lapse photography of fungi. The beauty and scientific accuracy of Stephen’s fungi photography have captivated national and international media, fungi experts and the general public.

I watched a bit.. It seems like he's escaping his personal problems through mushrooms. Looking down, instead of up. It'll work for a while, maybe for a very long time, but eventually he'll have to deal with the loss of his wife, and the reasons for his own illness. The fungi are fantastic. I've heard that they comprise the largest organism on earth, namely the fungus in the soil which feeds the roots of redwoods.. The live action film Super Mario Bros. said it all, really. Truth is, humanity stomps over this beauty in our collective quest for commercial hogwash. We don't even notice it. So maybe he's focusing on the microcosm, and that will help him along toward understanding macro. The devil is in the details, but God is always there, too.
