Although my main focus has been on the scientific aspects of fungi, I have always particulary enjoyed the beauty of the form of fungi. I received an email last week from fungal photographer Warren Krupsaw pointing me to some of his photographs that do a fine job of illustrating the beauty of fungi. In the words of the photographer:
My kind of “fungi awareness” also means being curious about how others deal with this particular subject matter and generally what I’m finding is that most folks take a “hands off,” keep-your-distance approach. I guess if you just want a record of your subject for identification purposes or whatever that’s fine, but fungi have the potential to be so much more up-close and personal if one concentrates on their unusual design elements.
