I know this one is a Mycena, but I did not find a convincing photo on my books for a correct id. The closest, maybe could be Mycena haematopus, but not sure at all.

The fact is that I found them in a most unconfortable place, and I had to do quite a climb to get only 2 shots. But they where glowing in the forest so nicely, I could not resist the temptation :)
As there were only this 2 specimens, I decided not to cut one of them for further investigation. If I did I would maybe have the confirmation for M.haematopus, as is produces a brown-red coloured latex when you cut the stem.

Of course any other suggestions are welcome.

ISO100 - F:4 - 1/60 sec. - Manual exposure - Minitripod

Me impresiona la excelencia en la iluminación de la foto.
Todo esta perfecto orden, tanto en cuanto a composición, como en lo referente a la exposición.
Usaron el anillo de flash para esta foto?
Se dice que los elementos pares no son buenos para componer, pero lo que es en este caso funcionan de maravilla.
Enhorabuena y gracias por compartir la foto.
Un gran saludo,

Lovely work, Felipe. I am glad that you risked the climb. It is a wonderful simple presentation with nice color saturation. The white caps look so nice against the background.

I guess that your preferred season is just around the corner :) This is another superb picture with great perspective, beautiful details and colors. They look like mini living-room lamps; they are beautiful and so delicate. Well done!

Hola Felipe,
Excellent macro shot.I liked low level POV,natural colors,lighting,exposure and visual impact are wonderful.

This is a magnificent capture and well worth the effort Felipe. The quality of the image is just fabulous. Wonderful lighting, POV, DOF and detail. Impressive.

Growing high into the sky ...
That's a lovely arrangement and I like it very much. What I don't like to hear is the word "autumn", there was no good summer yet - so I hope it will not be autumn soon. Thanks and bye

Very well chosen POV, and an excellent composition Felipe.
Very nice soft light and color, just the right DOF, great BG blur. I kinda like the transparent border treatment as well :)
Great work!

Hi Felipe,

I am still impressed by the way you capture these beauties... I remember a time when you were wondering if the TN members got bored of the shrooms... Now I hope it doesn't bother you anymore :)

Well done.
