For all of you photogs, another contest is in the works. After the jump, get the low down. And as always, happy shooting!
About the winner:
I am Melissa Glavin and I live in Niagara Falls, New York. I'm nineteen years old and I have been interested in photography for two years. I took this photograph of cubensis mushrooms in spring of 2008. The photo shows a mushroom that has newly matured and broke its veil. These mushrooms are hallucinogenic and worship dates back to 300 A.D. The Aztecs refered the them as "the flesh of the gods". Researchers have found that mushrooms of all types can often be used for medicinal purposes. Hallucinogenic mushrooms can aid in spirituality on many different levels. myspace.com/mgphotog showcases some of my other photography.
Photographers: upload your photos, and the editors' pick will be highlighted on the site, along with a short profile of the photographer. The next contest's theme is "Technology You Love" (which leaves you plenty of room for interpretation) and our winner will be chosen on Friday, September 12.

see the magic?
I would say they are dead ringers for Psilocybe cubensis. Which would make them "magic". Popular Science of the Mind.
