Stunning, for a moment there I thought you'd found the first 'giant' mushrooms and I'd find your entry in the Guinness Book of Records, Lisa! ;-)

Fun shot and quote. lol!

agree you having giving it great perspective gives the appearance that the mushroom is huge.

I don't know how big you all think the mushroom is, but I can tell you that it WAS indeed quite large . . . about the size of my outstretched hand, if my memory serves correct. There was a huge family of these mushrooms scattered all along this hillside. I was quite sad to come home from work 2 days later to see them all mowed down. :(

Wow! Great perspective.
Lovely composition. Indeed this seems to be a giant mushroom!

So sad to hear they were mowed down !

oh wow ... these are really beautiful ... sad that they and their somewhat whimsical nature were mowed down though ...
