[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
:) I chose a category " RAIN FOREST ", because I shot this photo in the forest and it was raining:)) I am sure it is some kind of Fungi but what exactly - I don't know...

If someone knows what it is - please comment.
I've spenta couple of hours searching through Internet but could not find anything like these fungi.

Anyway not so many bright spots in Belarussian Fosrest this time of year. These orange fungi draw attention very well.

DOF could be better:) But I had no time to change it. Every time I squat - hundreds of mosquitoes started to bite my hands face and neck;)

Hi Siarhei
Good shot very eye catching. Good colours, sharpnes, BG and POV. Intresting photo.
Well done


Curiosa imagen, bellos colores con un fondo que no distrae la atención sobre el objeto central.
Saludos, JL.

Salut Siarhei
C'est une belle prise de vue avec une belle composition .Les couleurs sont intéressantes malgré le fait que tu es pris cette photo sous la pluie.
Bravo et au revoir...JP

Hi Siarhei,
yours is a good photo, I like it.
About ID: this is Leocarpus fragilis (Dickson 1785) Rostafinski 1874. It belongs to the Myxomycetes CLASS and for the modern systematic it isn't a fungus; it have to be inserted in the Protozoa KINGDOM instead of Fungi KINGDOM.


Hello Siarhei,
A different macro subject..!
Interesting and beautiful...
Good details and great colours, well framed!

Coincido con XOTAELE. Es una imagen muy rara la de estos hongos. Nunca los haběa visto.
Buenos colores y composiciňn del cuadro.

Hello Siarhei.
Wellcome to a very select club in TN, the "Slime mould club".
I added you photo to a personal theme where you can see the rest of the Myxomycetes I found in TN. Hope you find it interesting.
The shot is really nice, this are veeery small and the details are great. Congratulations and TFS.
PD: You have the wrong genre, this are not fungi, not animals, not plants, they are Protoctista :)

Hi Siarhei,

Wow! I have never seen anything like this before Siarhei... nicely spotted. The colours are great and the background has a nice bokeh.
