Hi Ben,in your country is autumn,so it's the mushrooms time,and it's nice to see this beautiful trio made by the dangerous amanita,very sharp and bright capture in the best light,well done! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano
Great composition with the trio, however, I feel the image's a little bit overexposed. The scene's a bit busy with the grass-blades - it's useful to keep a scissor in the photo bag and remove at least those grass-blades which are between the subject and the lens, and may distract the overall view. I'm sure if you care about these, your next fly agaric photo will be a stunner! Good luck!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
Ciao Ben, great view of beautiful fungi, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
