A light in the dark

A posting on the Gower Wildlife blog of the spring fungi bog beacon (Mitrula paludosa ) reminded me that I found the same species amongst some alder carr at The British many years ago. With an hour to spare I decided to track it down again, and it proved to be surprisingly easy. A number of fruiting bodies protruding from the boggy underfoot conditions of a scrubed over corner of The British heath and home in time for lunch.

  1. I really like this photo. From this close up, the surface tension on the water makes a nice, rolling landscape for the image. Thanks for posting. I like it.
