[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Fungi Week continues.

Today I was in Zdrowie Park again. This time in rather wet area with many oaks around. I founded many amazing fungi species, most of them very small. This one was rather big - about few centimeters in diameter. It grows on old trunk and looks like alone sentinel guarding this part of forest. No idea about ID, sorry :-)

Tomorrow I'll start to send more colorfull and very small fungi.

If you've got few free hours and live in Europe go to forest. You'll be surprised how many different and colorfull fungi grows in late autumn in our continent.

So sharp, you can even see the silk from spiders :)
Lovely Bg and very good POV, looking for the best light to see the underside.
Next week I will have whole 5 days holidays in the forest serching for fungi, promise a present for you for your mycological consideration of this last days ;)
Best regards, Felipe.

This fungus rules :-) as well as Zdrowie Park does! Pozdrowienia - może kiedyś dostrzeżesz gościa z sony 717 w ręce i obłędem w oczach poszukującego "tematu" w tamym rejonie - bez wątpienia t będę ja. Chyba że kupię nowy paracik. :-) Miłego!

Estupendo hongo. Los colores y los detalles son fantásticos Grzegorz.
Un saludo y que tengas una buena semana.
Juan Luis.

Hi Greg

What a nice pose! The tones, light and contrast were are excellent and the exposure is very well managed.
I like the fact that there is nothing else in the frame near, in front and behind this mushroom to distract the attention; IMO this is gave a great composition to the entire frame. The small inclusion of the moss does well to give a bit of color, so it works great.

Very well done!
Bravo and TFS
Horia
