Hi Catalin,
I think I have a name worth looking at Psathyrella piluliformis , my books say common on or near Oak or Beech stumps and by the look of the leaf in the BG I think it must be on Beech (Fagus).
When posting unknown species, it helps to have some details of size and growing conditions, with fungi this is especially true as some can have very individual growing conditions which can make identification much easier.
Nice group shot,Good low angle. A couple of points to think about the image for the next time. F2.8 should be more like F8.0 to get the front to back of the group in focus, a small bit of (Gardening) to remove items like the leaf of the right that is reflecting distracting light back , you could darken this with burn tool set at a low level to make it less distracting. I notice you also had the flash set to red eye, this is not needed as plants and fungi do not need the preflash to make the pupils shrink before the picture proper is taken, it should be possible to turn this off in menu options.
hope this is of some help.TFS yours Robert

Hi emma I think I can name this fungus in 1, have a look at these Google images http://images.google.co.uk/images?hl=en&q=rhodotus&btnG=Search+Images
The one in my books was white but the cap texture looked right so I tried google images with the name Rhodotus palmatus Wrinkled Peach and they look pretty much like yours. Aparently a good test is the ease with wich the cap skin peels off.
Not posting much because I cannt trust the colours and brightness on my system as there seems to be a problem between the monitor and the comp :0(((
hope this ident is of use yours Robert

Hi felipe, having looked at it and mine and other web images I think it is the same as mine a Sickle bearing Bush Cricket. the wings are definatly of different lengths. and the size looks about right.
Good shot from a difficult angle along the length of the body. TFS yours Robert

Stunning capture of the electric storm, though for me cropping off the ferry and most of the town lights makes even more dramatic IMO. A few words add to the notes about how you set up to capture this moment would of intrest to the rest of us. TFS yours Robert

Welcome to TN Quinten, no idea what species of caterpillar this is but love the POV, some of the bright areas could do with calming down by using the burn tool set at a low level so they do notdistract for the subject.
A few notes about the subject and where and how you captured the image are sort of expected on TN. have a look around at some of the longer term members to see what works well.
if you have any questions please feel free to ask, yours Robert

Called in to my local camera shop today and they had a 2nd hand 500 sigma in the window as it was next to a nikon I thought it might be my lucky day, no such luck it was for a cannon ;0((.
the result of your 2nd morgage is stunning in its detail especially in the water splash. I can see some amazing shots coming up. TFS yours Robert

Welcome to TN theo, love the POV and the colour of the landscape. te shot works better if you crop off the bottom half of the grass to drop the line of giraffes onto the bottom third of the image. its a sort of unwriten rule in photography that you do not divide a picture in half like this but try to get subjects and lines that cross or meet a third of the way into the picture, this rule like all others is made to be roken but this isnt one of them.
A few notes about were and how you took the shot are sort of expected to accompany an image, have a look around Tn at some of the longer term mebers to see the sort notes that go down well.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask yours Robert

Hello Felipe, cracking capture the 828 seems to be doing a serling job in your hands one of the best immages I have seen produced with the camera.
as far as I can tell your Ident is correct, though it might be the form M.e. lignicola but this is only a thought.

Very nicely captured greg, the colours look good and the light looks like it was taken in Autumn light.
Looks like Sulphur Tuft fungi must be some dead wood under those leaves for them to grow on.

Welcome to TN Christophe, an intresting 1st image. the front of the face of the clown fish could do with darkening a faction and some extra sharpening, to bring it up to the stanard of the rest of the image which is very good.
I am asuming this was taken during a dive on the reefs of the Maldives.
I notice you have not inclueded and notes about the subject and how you captured and prepared it ready for us to , can I suggest that you have a look around TN especially at some of the longer term mebers. TFS yours Robert

Hi Pam , i am a real sucker for these little mongese, they have such caracter and it shows in the photos too which helps images like this bounce off the screen. If one was to make any critquecal point of the image it would be the tiny white piece of dust that needs cloning out from in front of the eyes, its right in the line of sight both of the meercat and the veiwer, but this is a very minnor and easily correctable nit.

Good evening Jorge,
I have a correct ident on your flower it is Lillium pardalinium a native of the western USA which makes this a garden escapee L. martigon is a pinky purple colour and a native of central and southern europe, in the uk there are only limited colonies and these are all a result of people dumping garden rubbish in the country side.
Are you sure this flower was not growing in a garden or the remains of one?
