[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Again I am not sure about the id of this mushroom, almost sure it is a mycena, but it is young and already 12 Cm. high, so it would fit also with some kind of Psathyrella like longipes. Both species are gregarious, usually found in clusters, but this one was alone standing proud, reflecting nice the scarce autumn light available in the late evening.

Hope you like!

Hola , veo que ya empiezan por allí a despuntar algunos hongos, que suerte, este ańo pinta muy mal para esta zona, ya en Septiembre y ni una gota...
To foto curiosa y elegante, no conocía ese alargado hongo jeje. Bonita presentación.
Saludos: J. Ignasi

Hi Felipe
Jolie composition pour ce champignon tout en hauteur. J'aime bien la composition.
Merci et au revoir...JP

Hola Felipe,
Un larguirucho, más graqnde de lo que pensaba, muy bien retratado y destacado mejor con ese formato alargado y vertical.
Buen fin de semana!

Hi Felipe,
Splendid capture! Beautiful fungi with different format!
Impressive the wealth of details!
Congratulations for the excellent work!
Thanks for sharing!
Best regard,
José Roberto

Yeah,there are so many of these Mycena that are so similar,ID becomes very difficult.
The shot is technically perfect.
Excellent detail on the cap and very good lighting all over.
Another beautiful shot Felipe.
Well done,
PS I just changed from the S3IS back to a Lumix,but this time I got the FZ8
So far it seems great.
You can read my rave about it and the specs

Hi Felipe & Cristina,
Seeing you after a long gap. Hope every thing is fine there. This capture is very nice and it is the first time I am seeing these thin lean fungus is growing all alone. Nice composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi FeCr!

I hope this one isn't unicelled :-) Not much to say - you're still reigning king of fungi and slimemoulds photos :-) Excellent composition, details and light. Oak leaves - yeah, I'm ready for trip to forest :-) But not today - it's raining badly...

Hola Felipe y Cristina
Muy interesante imagen del hongo, lo mas llamativo para mi es la dimensión del mismo.

This is wonderful Felipe, It is such a dramatic composition. One has to wonder how it can support itself on the spindly stem. I love the leaves giving scale and fall color to the image. You managed super sharpness and exposure.

Evelynn : )

Bonjour Felipe
Une trčs belle prise, une fois de plus tu nous en fais voir de tes spécialités, sujet trčs originale, excellente gestion de l'exposition, bonne restitution.
Amicalement Robi

Hello Felipe you have one of the most outstanding collection of mushroom pics I've ever seen and this shot is so very well taken the composition and DOF is perfect as usual your light is very nice. Details are pixel perfect. good work tfs rgds Necip.

Una imagen fabulosa.
Preciosos detalles y excelente fondo.
Una hermosa composición.
Un saludo, JL.

Hola Felipe,
Fantastic image. Some weeks ago I found a Mycena as high as this one, but haven't managed to do a useful shot, even if I tried everything - the disadvantage of small compact camera. I can't tell how much I'd like to use the FZ-50 we talked about.
You cropped the photo quite well, the vertical semi-panorama works to me. Bombastic sharpness - as always on your photos. You also did well with bg - for a shot like this is totally, or almost impossible to compose an environmental bg. Fine work overall, congrats.
Gracias, un saludo, amigo. László
