the december mushrooms
Not surprised you found this bunch in December... it's Flammulina velutipes (Curtis) Singer, a very typical winter mushroom! Easy to identify from the slimy, brown-ish orange cap, creamy to white gills and velvety stem, which is yellow when young, black-ish brown when aged. Growing from November to March, always in conditions below 12 Celsius, bearing a few degrees of frost, too. Edible.
Nice compo and exposure. Probably the photo got just a touch more of blue tone than the optimal (white balance), and the grey canvas isn't my cup of tea either - otherwise nice job. Tfs.
Best regards, László

niesamowite, ze te grzyby wyrosly w zimie! Chyba to jakies dziwne, aczkolwiek nie mialbym nic przeciwko, by rosly teraz prawdziwki :)
Bardzo dobry punkt widzenia i ladne naturalne kolory.

An attractive presentation of these colorful mushrooms. It's nice to see you were able to find them this late in the year in such good shape. Our mushrooms have all but disappeared since the weather has turned cold. Love the fine detail and natural colors you were able to capture. Well done!!
