Steve Axford, an Autralian Photographer, captured the most startling photos of beautiful-bright-colored Mushrooms. He is now retired, and spends his time taking awesome photographs.
On his website, he writes:
I am now a retired person, which means I can do much more of what I like. What I like is photography and exploring the world. The world, for me, is dominated by living things and the planet we live on . My photography is an avenue into exploring this world. My interests cover everything from micro fungi to volcanoes, though more of my time now is spent with the fungi than the volcanoes.
Below are some of his amazing photos of mushrooms. Please visit his website steveaxford.smugmug.com to see more of his work.
