Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) features a mushroom that if one were given paper and drawing materials and asked to draw a mushroom about 3 inches (~7.5 cm) tall seems quite likely would escape the imagination. 

As a life form - shape and structure - it is nothing short of spectacular and is another example of what nature makes through the process of biological evolution. It was found and photographed in a wood near Eischen, Luxembourg.

About life's diversity Charles Darwin wrote "from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved."
