Is Hong Kong feet or athlete’s foot fungus trying to take control of us?

thanks for sharing…. the Planet Earth also has a section on the cordyceps fungus infecting ants and other small insects to take control over their bodies… very amazing…
actually have been searching to take a macro shot of the infected ants… but without success…
have seen some nice shots from others though ….

Welcome to NPSS. I edited your post on the link as the copyright of the photo belongs to the photographer, we will not include the image in the forum, instead I changed that to a link.
Thanks for providing the information.
