The frequent rain showers we have been getting have been just what the fungi has been waiting for. The fungus, which is mostly a network of web-like structures growing underground, send their fruiting bodies (which we call mushrooms) up into the air so they can disperse their spores. I saw this photogenic cluster of mushrooms sticking up through the moss the other day.
Fungus is everywhere and scientists are just now understanding how valuable they are in their partnership with trees and other plants; transferring nutrients to them.
