Steve Axford's remarkable fungi photography

I recently learned that the mushrooms from the Mario Bros. games are based on a real shroom with hallucinogenic effects that make it feel as though you are growing (or shrinking) in size when consumed. In honor of that amazing discovery, let's take a look at more mushrooms.

These stunning images were taken by Australian photographer Steve Axford, whose passion is capturing the lives of people, unusual plants, rare animals, and most importantly, weird and beautiful fungi. Steve has deep-rooted interest in ecology, but his passion for mushrooms grew when he left his job in IT and moved to the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales.

His fascinating photos have been published across the UK, the United States, Spain, Germany, Poland and in China. See more of Steve's work on his website.
