Fungi Neighborhoods

Once upon a time a tiny spore blew into the moss and lichen neighborhood.  Not one moss pulled up roots and moved.  Not one lichen opened their mouth in protest. They grew and prospered together. 
 Like kind grew closer
but in the end the organisms made up their collective minds to favor cohabitation in peace and harmony.

May humans take a lesson from Nature.
She's been at it far longer and know it's a workable solution.

Lovely shots of the tiny Fungi, I took some very similar ones only yesterday. They are little marvels, ..and so interesting to find and photograph. I do agree with you that we could learn a lot from nature, even from fungi!:)

Humans can learn a lot from nature. If only we'd pay more attention.

Mother Nature teaches us everything we need to know. We need only listen and learn from her and each other.

Who would think that fungus was beautiful, but it is . . . it's such a pure and natural design element . . . only God can make such interesting art :)
