    These are bunnies, right??
    I just learned the term "pareidolia" (imposing a meaning on shapes where there is none) in the crossword blog I read, as it was the theme of a recent puzzle.

    Very nice.

    It reminds me of the work of Nils Udo, a well-known land-artist. A slightly different approach, but nature is the main component of his works.
    I visited an exhibition of his works, and that was fantastic.

    Drawing with flowers Painting with clouds Writing with water :

    Art in nature - Nils Udo

    I've linked to Instagram user marin_mushrooms, Alison Pollack, before. She recently posted what she thinks is the fungus Coccomyces dentatus in Tillamook State Forest in Oregon .

    One of the comments is "definitely art".
