These mind-boggling mushroom pictures showcase the beauty of nature. Captured by Steve Axford, these shots of gilled fungi display vibrant colors.
The New South Wales based photographer is retired and spends his spare time observing wildlife and taking pictures of these mysterious mushroom wonders. He often travels around the world in order to photograph uncommon plants, animals and people. His love of ecology and the environment is evident as his mushroom pictures show off their unexpected beauty as well as the incomprehensible amount of diversity in ecosystems. According to the Australian photographer, his work is an "avenue into exploring this world."
In addition to gilled fungi, Steve Axford has documented non-gilled fungi, lichen, slime mould and other living things.
