The Fascinating World of Mushrooms

 Mushrooms are the recyclers of the forests. You may not know this, but mushrooms are so diverse that the number of different species rivals the number of species in the entire animal kingdom. They've also been found to be a closer relative to humans than other plants. Photographer Steve Axford is passionate about the color and beauty of mushrooms and the world of fungi in general, and loves to share his visual curiosity and discoveries with the world. Living in Australia, Steve travels around the world, capturing photos of rare animals, plants and the diverse people he meets. But his greatest love of photography is saved for the fungi, which, I think, have never been captured as beautifully as this.
