Location: Xishuangbanna, Yunnan Province, China


In the Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture, there are many fallen leaves in the tropical rainforest. In the humid and sultry environment, fallen leaves become the nourishment of various plants and fungi - I saw a group of very small fungi growing on this leaf.

As the sun shined on the forest floor, I put the camera on the ground to shoot, and used its Live View function to focus. The dead leaves fall to the roots of trees and eventually break down into the soil. All life has a certain destination, and these fungi display the beauty and fragility of life.
