Mycology is a strange thing. When I tell someone that I study fungi for a living, I get the strangest looks but if they could stop and see the world the way I do for just a minute they might see how amazingly wonderful the smallest parts of our world really are. Take this image for example, these are not just some clinging parasites devoid of beauty. They are as beautiful as any flower. In a world of magic they might lend themselves as faerie shelves. At this angle in science fiction this looks like a completely different world and yet it is the same Earth we all call home.
