Some legends are just head scratchers. A modern person looks at a constellation or a rock feature on a mountain and wonders why on Earth their ancestors thought that it resembled a head or a hunter or a beast. However the sources of some legends are not only obvious but quite delightful. These wondrous little fruiting bodies on a bed of moss show quite well where the stories of pixies and their cups came from. One can easily see a svelte little form flitting up and supping out of such a ephemeral goblet.
