Closeups of tiny Mycena fungi. This species is (as yet) unidentified and is about 1cm high, though specimens do reach 2-3cm high and up to 4mm across the cap.
The hairs are infertile cells that appear to discourage predation by insects or small animals.
These were found near Booyong in northern NSW and are the first of this group of fungi that have been found in Australia.

Eastern Wyoming is totally fracked. North of Cheyenne, north of Douglas in particular. I had not seen with my own eyes fracking wells until today. So many so close together. At one point there must have been close to 100 visible. This is on addition to the open pit coal mines on the Thunder Basin National Grassland. Very distressing when I put on music and want the combination on music and landscape to mesmerize me, to get hypnotized. No all the fracking wells made the landscape look foreign. Oh it was sunny and windy in eastern Wyoming today- a sun/wind spill you could say-
