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.
