Capturing The Moment — Real Mushroom Or Artifact?   6 comments

While hiking the Upper Butterfly trail this past Friday, I noticed a beautiful black mushroom. Not being an expert on mushrooms, it’s not surprising that I had never seen such a beautiful mushroom. Cool! Well, not really if you think this mushroom shape was created by nature. The mushroom is the work of nature, but not the form.

One of our fellow hikers, Bonnie, having had some experience with mushrooms, noted that mushrooms spores are never on top. This mushroom is, therefore, an artifact. Some creative person came along the trail, saw the mushroom, and crafted a new shape out of the existing mushroom. Cool, yes, but then I would love to have captured a “before” image.

Thanks, Bonnie, otherwise I would have posted these images without knowing that an inherent element had been changed resulting in a mushroom artifact.
