3 Species:

* The big one I guess it is a Galerina sp.:
Galerina species are mostly delicate, brown-spored fungi of mossy, base-poor conditions, with many clearly associated with the mosses themselves, apparently as saprotrophs and weak parasites on older moss material.

* The yellow one is Bisporella citrina:
Lemon Disco Fruit body 0.5–3mm across, saucer-shaped tapered below to a small base, bright yellow becoming orange-yellow when old or dried, exterior smooth. Asci 135×10µ. Spores elliptical, containing two oil drops at each end, 9–14×3–5µ, often becoming one-septate. Habitat gregarious in dense swarms on dead wood of deciduous trees. Season autumn. Common. Not edible. Found In Europe and north America

* The white tiny ones are Mycena adscendens:
This are one of my favourite fungi, and I have posted already two size comparation Workshops HERE and HERE.

Hope you like!

I find this a very nice shot. Looks like a fary tail where you can aspect tinklebell at any moment. The POV is great, as the colors are. Very well done and thanks.

Hello again,
This is very interesting post! The one big is a strong element of the composition, the yellow ones make an interesting BG and add some colour and the white little ones are a nice bonus.
Everything is very good technically and the lighting is spot on!

Foto asombroso con una luz que reproduce a la perfección la sensación de estar en el bosque, casi se puede percibir el agradable y frondoso olor del humus. Preciosa foto. Felicidades!

This is a great capture with a lot of detail on all three species. The exposure is spot-on and the colour saturation is great. This POV makes it look like a fairy world. The framing rounds this picture off perfectly.

Wow... Felipe.
I love the composition that include at least 3 different kinds of fungi of different shapes, colors, textures, sizes, and orientations.
So much to look at!
The light and colors are beautiful. The details are so sharp, and the textures are well portrayed.
Fantastic shot and TFS. : )

Wow! Incredible composition, sharpness and lightning! By looking at this photo, we feel that we can almost touch them. What also amazed me about it is that you captured 3 different species in the same frame. Very well done! TFS,


Hi Felipe

Well done on a very good shot. Nicely composed, good depth of colour and POV. :-)

Hola Felipe y Cristina.

Es verdaderamente un placer el ver la forma que trabajan con los colores en lugares obscuros y ademas ver la coloracion y los detalles de vuestras fotos.

Hola Felipe,
Toda una exposición de setas! Un colorido, una composición y una variedad extraordinarias. No sé cuál es más bonita de las tres!
Me quedo con las transparentes de la derecha.
Un saludo,

Hi Felipe!
Definitelly my kind of photo - I love all your photos from different species of microforest. All fungi looks great, but Mycena is my favourite. Very delicate and ethereal, drops of dew on it looks superb. By the way - I bet we could see dozens of other fungi on your photo, but with microscope only :-)

The Sony realy does give you a great detailed result.

POV is superb as usual, and great sharpness and DOF. 3 sp in one shot, well done, even better that you can ID them.

Really excellent work Felipe.

Beutiful macro shot of this mushroom community the light has all kinds of different effect in this capture, all with fine details. :)

Hello Felipe and Cristina,
You have so nices photos, it's a pleausure for the eyes.
Thank you for sharing your talent.

This is a great capture with a lot of detail.
Very good composition and the POV is terrific.
Sharpness, light, colors, all is perfect!
Congradulations for your nice work!
Bests regards,


The big one I guess it is a Galerina sp., it can also be a Laccaria species or the laccaria proxima or laccata.
I can not take a good look.
Also mycena species are difficult to determinate.

Good foto and also beautiful colours.

Regards Gert

Three for the price of one. Very nice find! The water droplets on the tiny Mycena is a nice touch!
