“Why are we waiting for them here?”
“Because they don’t carry light and I need a clear shot. Quiet, I think they’re close.” Halen had heard some shuffling in the cavern below his overhang. He strung an arrow and stared into the darkness. Suddenly lights flared up in the dark below, starting small as he drew the arrow back and flashing into explosions of color as he released his shaft toward the startled silhouette.
These brightly colored mushrooms are otherwise small and unobtrusive, at least until they are disturbed. At the slightest touch they fire balls of brightly glowing spores into the air above them. These balls explode at about four feet high with blinding light and singeing heat.
Happy 4th of July!
