Foxfire

One of the neatest things I ever stumbled across in Bent Tree was back in 2012. I was walking the Beaver Run Trail one dark morning and saw a weird yellow-green glowing in the distance. I kept heading towards the glow and came across a patch of bioluminescent fungi…foxfire.  The photos above and below show two of the glowing fungi, but the photos don’t come close to capturing how amazing it looked in person.  Click the photo below to zoom:

Luminescence

While going through pictures, yesterday, I came across some neat ones taken in 2012. I was hiking along the Beaver Run Trail on a summer morning, and noticed several luminescent fungi along the trail. To zoom in, click on a photo twice.
