Small mushroom photographed in the "Marais du Nord" near Quebec City in Canada. Unfortunately, I don't know the name of that mushroom... Perhaps can you help me.

Thanks to extramundi for telling me the name of this mushroom. This is a Hygrocybe coccinea.

Hi Jerome, I did not have the opportunity to give you the welcome to TN.
You have hit my favourite theme, mushrooms, and I think I can help you with this one. Although I cant be 100% sure, this looks very much like a Hygrocybe coccinea, or maybe another specie of the several existing red Hygrocybes. You can make a search on this ones, and have a look. Nice composition, but the F:2.8 used made that only the stem in in good focus, leaving the cap out of DOF. I love this mushroom and hope to find this one sooner or later. Thanks for posting.

Another lovely waxgill, I agree with Felipe that its a Hygrocybe but not going to attempt naming a species from the other side of he world. More DOF would have been nice

super !!! gj

It has such a lovely colour. Try cropping some of the bottom out I think it will enhance the composition. Felipe is right with the F2.8 its a very shallow DOF. I still like the shot though. Well done.

Magnifique composition avec l'avant-plan flou forçant le regard sur le champignon, on reconnait tes grandes qualités de photographe Jérôme, souci du détail et précision du cadre.



Beautiful color and a great use of selective focus. Wonderful ground-level point of view.
