I found a fairy ring to share. Sometimes it seems as though you have seen something so many times, but when you want to show an example, one can be excessively hard to find.
In the first photo, you can see a mushroom fairy ring on the forest floor, in the shade. This is not a particularly large ring, about a yard (one meter) in diameter. I think this means it is sized for smaller fairies to use as a gathering or dancing ring 🙂
A close up of this ring shows it to be fairly symmetrical. Although the mushrooms are not evenly distributed around the ring, but heavily weighted to one side.
The bottom photo shows a different type of mushroom growing among the smaller ones in this ring. If you look at the middle picture very close, in the upper left corner, you might spot the relatively larger interloper pushing up through the fir needles on the ground.
