Mushroom Hunt Pictures – Roadside Desert

Death and destruction on the roadside. A parched strip of land, baked by the sun in the summer, destroyed by salt runoff in winter. But silverweed endures and sends its creeping stolons across it.

I did not notice the dead moth until today. But it fits the scenery just fine.

    That’s a beautiful photo.
    I find the drive to fill all places with ‘Life’ interesting. Plants can break through concrete and small ecosystems grow around them. Creatures in the ocean can survive at depths that would kill humans and the deserts have creatures that survive long periods without water. It’s quite the fecund planet that we occupy.
