Cordyceps video

Best wishes for a happy New Light and New Year to everyone!
I'd like to share an amazing video of the Cordyceps fungus (many different species are shown) parasitizing an ant. The time-lapse effect is incredible, and gave me a very visceral connection to these mushrooms I often use and recommend for their ability to enhance life, energy, and stamina in human beings. As always, many sides to every story and many strands in the ecological web.
Via the wonders of MetaFilter.
