A fungus is neither plant nor animal.

It thrives among the roots of trees, occasionally saying “hello” above ground in the form of a fruit, or mushroom. 

Fungus II

The morel is a common edible mushroom found in North American hardwood forests. It might also appear in your backyard garden.

Fungus III

Hunting truffles takes patience. They live entirely below ground.

Fungus IV

In 1928, Scottish microbiologist Alexander Fleming left for holiday without tidying up. He returned to observe the reaction of staph bacteria to penicillin mold. 

Fungus V

When hunting truffles in France, pray to St. Anthony. In Italy, a dog might prove more useful.
