[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

I return to my beloved fungi with this post. What You see on the pic is Conocybe tenera, a common but often overlooked mushroom. Living on fields - in lawns its size is very small (a few centimeters or even one only), while in high grass the stem may be longer than 20 centimeters (see it on the photo) and not straight. Very varying and quite poorly known taxon - but posted for the first time on TrekNature.

Photo: done on the same field, on the same day as my Red Elderberry shot. Nothing really challenging technical-wise - but I feel it became a nice macro. Very simple PP like little noise reduction, selective sharpening and as usual from me, framing, signing, re-sizing.

Thanx for telling Your opinion, either You agree or disagree with me.

Hi MF Laszlo,
this is a very classical shot of this excellent fungi. The crooked stem and the slanting leaves really gives an outstanding composition.
Very lively and special capture to depict the beauty of both - nature and skillfull photographic elements.
Congratulations for such a neat, sharp and stylish composition.

Best regards,

Ciao Laszlo, great view of beautiful fungi, congratulations for this first time on Tn, splendid details and wonderful natural colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Laci
Wonderful macro of this lovely fungi!
Details are perfect!
Colors and light are great!

Perfect capture of this little fungi!
Colors and details are perfect.

Hello Laszlo friend,
A mushroom classic, though that curvature of the stem (żis also called "stem" on the mushrooms?) Adds a sense of additional interest to the photo. Also the blurred fungi in the background, complements the set in very delicate way. And .. There is a bug shield on the bottom! how nice!. Thanks for sharing. Have happy weekend. Greetings. Jesús

Hy Laszlo,

Excelent shot of this mu fungus, excelent POV, the colors and details are are just perfect.
Thanks for sharing,

best regards,

Hello Laszlo !
Thanks for identifying one of my old fungi pictures ! I'm sorry I neded so long to return your nice comments, but I had to go to the hospital and couldn't write to anybody. Now I'm back, so here we go - I love this picture ! The shape of the fungi, the way they are hidden in the gass, the details, the natural colors, everything is so pretty, it's a real pleasure to look at. Very well done !

Hi Laszlo.
Simple enough scene but you managed to create a wonderful, very impressive picture. Curved stems of the mushrooms, diagonal arrangement of the grass, fine combination of the excellent details and nice blurriness make a nice impression. My compliments and TFS.
