look closely

What we see depends mainly on what we look for.
--John Lubbock (1834-1913) English banker, statesman, and naturalist

Ephemeral mushrooms in my recently laid mulch. They appear overnight by the hundreds, last for a couple of hours and then whither away with the day's heat. They're very small, maybe an inch or two tall - and have a translucent quality to them.
