fairy ring, late afternoon

fairy ring

I had never encountered a fairy ring until a couple of months ago.  During my morning “run” (aka mushroom spotting and moss examining) through the forest, I spotted a cluster of cute little mushrooms… then another… hey! there’s a line… wait!  what?!  A fairy ring!!!!!  Upon further investigation, I found two intersecting rings – a fairy figure eight, if you will.  I took my camera back the next morning to document my find, but, mysteriously, the battery was dead even though I had just charged it!  Coincidence?  I think not.  By the next day, the mushrooms had become slug fodder, I guess, and the ring was impossible to make out  the fallen leaves.  Or maybe it just claimed a victim and disappeared.
