A fairy ring, also known as fairy circle, elf circle, elf ring or pixie ring, is a naturally occurring ring or arc of mushrooms, in his case Marasmius oreades. The body of this fungus, its mycelium, is underground. It grows outward in a circle. As it grows, the mycelium uses up all of the nutrients in the soil, starving the grass. This is the reason a fairy ring has dead grass over the growing edge of the mycelium. Umbrella-shaped fruiting bodies, called mushrooms, spring up from just behind the outer edge of the mycelium.

Amanda Palmer in The Dresden Dolls’ Shores of California video and Neil Gaiman's ALS ice bucket challenge.
Neil’s wearing his black velvet Kambriel jacket at the beginning of the video (thank you for not dousing it!), but I couldn’t resist this particular teaming of images.
