Hello Richard
What a fantastic find. I have never seen these before.
On the photograph I feel that shooting at f32 you have pushed a fine lense beyond its limits resulting in the subject being a little soft and unsharp on the rear stems...May I suggest a setting of about f10 to f18. I might be wrong but I think this will be more in the limits of the lenses capabilities.
Great colours all round and a great find..I really like it
TFS and the Best of Regards

Hello Richard,

Good sharp picture of this fungi. Nice natural colours.


Hi Richard,
Nice fungi, nice photo. By my opinion You should have cropped more from both sides, because they (I mean the trunk on left and the leaf on right) don't mean anything to the people who see Your photo. A more narrow cropping would be better, please have a look on WS.
Otherwise nice image, tfs and best regards, László
