I like this picture. The fungus looks like asparagus with umbrella :-)

This is a fantastic fungus, I havent seen one soo green in my life, it looks radioactive. Thanks for your notes too, glad you like my photos, and very pleased to hear I will see in TN a nice New Zealand collection, that sounds really exotic, you are in the other side of the globe!
Hope to see more photos and critiques (good or bad) soon :)

wow qu'el beau specimen !
la couleurs est vraiment exquise !
merci ;)

Welcome to TN Steve this Atomic fungus is a very welcome adition here , look forward to seeing more from your part of the world.

Hi Steve, and welcome to TN
A beautiful strange fungus. Two comments, Crop off on the left and a bit on the bottom, so that the subject is place more on a third to a fifth in the frame – he enhance the impact on the viewer. Also, the whites are just a wee bit too hot. Try underexposing the flash by -1 or more.

Very interesting fungi. I've not seen this colour before! I don't think the DOF is enough here, could do with a little more. But, I'm so glad you posted this as it's not someting I've seen. Good stuff.

That is the first green mushroom I have ever seen. Wonderful tree bark, the mushroom is a bit white, but beautiful all the same.

A really interesting mushroom! I know how difficult it is to optimise exposure when taking close ups in dark places. Someone else has suggested deliberately underexposing.A "quick fix" I have found useful is to place a white card with some writing (or dark mark) next to the mushroom and set up focus and exposure with this - lock and then re-aim at the mushroom. I find it easier than overriding the auto features.

Hi Steve,
A colorful Hygrocybe specie - oh, what do I say, all of them are very colorful. But a green one's quite unique, even in that genus. I remember finding some (H. nigrescens for example) years ago, but never a green one - as far as I know, they don't live here in Hungary.
Except for the little OE on the cap You photographed this little treasure quite well, great DOF, colors and sharpness. Tfs.
Good night, László
