Hello Steve !
Wow, blue fungi - I didn't know thid could exist ! Once again you come up with an amazing picture, showing all the beauties of your country. I really like the details, on the fungi as well as on the moss. Composition, POV are excellent. I'm impatient to see all those colorful fungi you speak about in your note !
Greetings from France !

interesting species of fungi with classical
blue color,in an environment that shows us so well the undergrowth...
do you have a new camera my friend?
I'm happy for you - and happy because I know, you will post further ;-)
I made a short break of nearly 2 weeks now, no time ...
So I'm happy to find again time today to look at all the pretty shots. Your funghis are fantastic and so interesting. I never saw a blue one in nature, I like this shot, so beautiful. Thanks and greetings

Blue fungis are always spectacular in a picture, and combined with these lovely umbrella mosses, they make a wonderful and natural picture.
With autumn arriving, you must feel happy!
Thanks for picture and instructive note

Beautiful, Steve, I thought of Schtroumphs when I saw the blue fungi, it's the same blue. Lovely composition, too, I love the moss at the background and the arrangement of the fungi, with the one cap upside down. You give a lot of information, too, and coupled with the picture, it is quite an interesting post. Many thanks!

Excellent picture and subject, mate! NZ is really place from fairy tales. Blue mushrooms! Crazy place... And autumn in march... Erm... I don't know what to say but this is silly :-) Last but not least I'm trying to remind myself which alchemical symbol was blue...

I think i'm gonna have to move to New Zealand, between you and "Kathleen S." the different species of Exotic Fungi that thrive over there is simply breathtaking! I hear the Lamb is very good also! This species has such a rich blue color it's hard to understand that they are real. You've managed to capture them really well, though I would have also like you to capture them fully and a bit zoomed out. Composition, DOF, focus and lighting are just right! The tranquil Umbrella moss surrounding adds a nice touch to the scene!

nice fungi that I have never been seen in the wild.
Good pov, a pity it's are cut of the fungi.

Great colours'composition,I have never seen such blue mushroom!
The colours are very natural, but would have been better with a deeper DOF, but seeing the exposure I understand that the light was not in your favour !

looking at your fungi makes me want to visit New Zealand once and try my hand on such wonderful objects. But then it takes the photographic skills to render them as you do ... :-).
What's so interesting here is how the fungi seem to grow out from the dark into the light. Great composition.

This is one of the nicest fungi if there's possible to say something like this. You're lucky to find them from year to year.
Yes, this isn't Your best Entoloma shot. An acceptable one with great colors and lights, but one of the fungi and also the greenery in the lower left corner became more or less out of focus. Overall: 7 out of 10 on my personal ranking.
What is Calostema rodwayii and Chamonixa pachydermis? Never heard even about the generas, and Index Fungorum doesn't know any of them either. Are they myxomycotas?
Best wishes, László

I love these coloured mushrooms Steve. What a beautiful colour - my favourite colour is blue!!
But they go so well with the bright green moss - it is a pretty picture.
Good focus and sharpness too
