Hearing the words fungus photography together may make the average person feel squeamish or even a bit perplexed. Why would the average person want to take photos of something that most people try so hard to get rid of? Steve Axford has found the answer in these picturesque photos that show just how beautiful fungus can be.

Axford is now retired so finding a fun hobby to take up your time becomes a must. Rather than taking on the task of learning how to golf, he decided to take up photography. These images show fungi with bright colors and what seems to be natural light emanating from them, showing that nature is never necessarily what it appears to be.
