Macro-photography Shows The Immense Beauty Of Mushrooms

Marco-photographer extraordinaire, Alison Pollack, focuses her photography on fungi and Myxomycetes.

Pollack's Instagram account is jam-packed with stunning photos of these minuscule hypnotic mushrooms. In an interview with PetaPixel, Pollack reveals how she got started, "I started to get serious about mushroom and Myxomycete photography a couple of years ago, when I found and photographed my first Myxomycete. I had no idea what it was, so I looked it up online. I was immediately fascinated with the Myxomycete life cycle, and I have been avidly hunting and photographing them ever since.

As I looked for the tiny Myxos, I also started noticing really tiny fungi, and started photographing them as well. These tiny organisms are all over the forest when it rains, but they are so small that people just don't see them. My goal is to reveal their beauty and magic!"

You have definitely done so! Scroll down to see some of that magic mushroom revealed by Pollack:
