can anyone tell me what these are? there was clusters growing on a pile of bark chippings, when open they have flat grey caps that eventually curl up. i tried to isolate these two by using a shallow dof, though there was a strong contrast in the scene.

Hello Sue,
I'm pretty sure these are Coprinus lagopus, the Haresfoot Inkcap. We have the same species here on the West Coast of NZ.
A Google image search under Coprinus lagopus should find them.
Not a bad shot of these two.
I like the composition and POV.
Nice work.

Hello Sue,
These fungi are related to the Shaggy Ink-cap and come under the genus name of Coprinus. There are several species of Coprinus and this one might be Coprinus macrocephalus. Many fungi in this family are edible when young and can be quite tasty.
Fine capture with good sharpness and in an excellent composition with a fine bokeh BG.
Well done and TFS!

very nice ones, never saw this kind before, TFS Ori

Hi Sue.
What a perfect reproduction of amazing scene. Shot is composed simply outstandingly. DOF is great: sharpness of the fungi and blurriness of the surroundings are fantastic. Colours and lighting are great too. Bravo and TFS. Excellent job.

Hola Sue.
Delicados tonos y bellos contrastes los de estas pequeñas setas con el fondo.
Bellos detalles.
Un saludo, JL.
