Photographer Steve Axford continues his quest to photograph unique and sometimes undiscovered fungi from around Australia. Axford lives in the Northern Rivers area of New South Wales in Australia and many of his photos are taken right from his own back yard. They’re known as sub-tropical fungi and some species many have never been photographed before. Others from his album came from Victoria and Tasmania and are classified as temperate fungi. Along with the more popular mushroom, Axford likes to photograph all kinds of fungi, including slime mold and lichens. There’s no limit to the diversity of life forms he stumbles across in their color and shape.
You can find more of Axford’s photos of fungi and other wildlife on Flickr and SmugMug. [h/t thisiscolossal.com]
