18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Shining mushrooms

"Tsukiyotake" is a mushroom that glows at night. This mushroom has poison. I searched for Mt. Daisen at night because I wanted to shoot this mushroom. Finally, I found only one tree with this mushroom. I could see a few stars, so I took a picture with the trajectory of the stars.
