Every year, spectacular ‘ghost fungi’ glow bright in bushland across Australia, including at Ocean Grove Naure Reserve, Victoria, where photographer Brendan Calwell captured this video of the bioluminescence on June 1. “Every year around Autumn these spectacular glow in the dark fungi bodies erupt from rotting ground and trees,” Calwell told Storyful. “While they stand out in the night, luminescence glowing 24 hours a day, they can still be illusive… Might be another reason these are called Ghost Fungi.” According to Guardian Australia, Ghost Fungus is poisonous and typically found after rain among tree trunks and stumps.
