a beautiful composition so that moss in the background. Too bad that the hood of the mushroom is slightly damaged. Doesn't matter. The overall picture is bright in color and sharp. POV, DOF and BG are good. And thanks for the complete enviroment around this mushroom.
Regards and TFS BOB

You are fortunate to have the kind of environment that is conducive to the growth of a variety of fungi, Steve.
If you had not mentioned it, I wouldn't know you had done any cloning in the picture. To me, this specimen looks as natural as can be.
The earth in your fugii pictures is always wet and moist with lots of mosses on it -- an ideal breeding ground for fungi.
Thanks for sharing yet another vivid picture from your favourite theme.

Not the jellybabies I know Steve!
Nice capture of this species of gelatinous fungus taken with fine sharpness and lighting and from a great POV.
Looks like you have a new Lumix now, either that or the old one is back in harness!
Thanks and all the best,

I found the same species in my French Alps last year ;-)
Nice shot and interesting Photographer's note.
Thanks for sharing.

Finally a specie we, Europeans also know. :) This is a cosmopolitan specie, growing almost everywhere on Earth - although not really common, for example I've never seen it by myself.
Photographically: nice image, but not such outstanding as Your Clavaria shot a few days ago (by my personal opinion, of course). I don't know, why. Maybe due to the similar colors, or the disturbing branch in the foreground which should have been removed. 8 out of 10 on my personal rankings.
Friendly regards, László

I wish I had more time............
However I cannot pass this by without saying. Wonderful composition. Striking assortment of green colours. It certainly does remind one of jelly babies, but also gherkins. Just love the fine ferns that surround this fungi. Thanks for sharing.
