Felipe, what funny characters they look! And they're growing up a wall too. Amazing find, and they can last for a whole year.
Felipe, I find this quite an amazing plant and I thank you for showing it and also your instructive notes as well.
You have captured them real well, it's a good natural shot with the 3 stages of growth showing. Yes, I do like it, thank you.

What an interesting and useful submission! The photo is technically excellent and as an illustration of the developing fungus I can't think of any way it could be improved. Well done! Earth stars either do not grow in my part of the world or they are rare enough that I have never found one.

This is dream photo! I heard that these fungi grow in Poland, but never saw it. And you posted not one but all bunch of them ;-) Very educative - different stages and ages. Green moss is very suitable for composition. Quality is very high and note informative. Good work!

A new way of writing critiques. I hope you don't mind.
Scale 1-5, 5 is the best.
I like the frame a lot.

I find this post with the different stages quite interesting. Its an unusual composition but the diagonal works and it creates the effect of them hanging down. I do find myself tilting my head slightly to the left when I view it though. You might have considered removing the dead leaf at the top left but I am nitpicking now. :)
your taxonomic identification is correct but its right name is Astraeus hygrometricus (Persoon 1801) Morgan 1889, not Geastrum.
It si unmistakable because is the only specie (in Europe) with rays flattening to the substrate only with humid climate (inde nomen).
