When you write that you have, very a few light nevertheless see I here a wonderful mushroom, this type can I not find in Belgium. Very well picture, yes the autumn is a wonderful period in the year for nature photographers.
Nice work here.
Now thats an interesting description were did it come from. I guess I could work that out for my self if I had not had so much rum tonight :) The spore colour is interesting Entoloma's are generally described as pink. I like the way the light is hitting both the fungi and the plant now do you have a name for this :) TFS

Oh Steve, what a beauty this blue fungus is. I love it how it is poking out of the greenery and is standiing there all on its own.
And what an well ordered composition it is too.

Thats a long time ago, but you will back with a beautiful mushroom. The name sounds a bit Germans or Swiss. I think you are very succesful with using your LCD Headlamp.I´m agree what Fungiman said, I like also the way the light is hitting both the fungi and the plant now. A good decision. What an incredible colour, as deep purple. Good job. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend and TFS BOB

WoW, very interesting take, nice blue color. I prefer you crop it towards the mushroom leaving less space.

Very impressive, the only way I would get blue fungi would be to paint one of the brown ones -that would be cheating wouldn't it?

I have never seen a blue fungus before! No wonder they are so frequently included in fairy stories; this has a magical quality.
It looks well against the mosses with just a hint of a shadow across its stalk.

Wow Steve, I've never seen a blue fungi, it is very "pretty" I like the effect with the lamp on it. It's good to see one of your lovely fungi photos again. I like the green plant next to it, sort of an "odd couple" pose with the plant almost introducing us to the blue fungi, well done.

They're a great species and I can't wait to get over there and see it in person. Great lighting effect, beautiful colour. Well composed and good sharpness and DOF.
As always, I'm amazed by looking at this wonderful mushroom, most of all if I'm looking at such a nice composition as this one. Absolutely perfect. One of Your best shots. Bravo.
Something more, a bit personal: here in Hungary there are 11 Entoloma species living, but the only one I ever found is E. clypeatum. None of them are so spectacular as this specie. But to show You a really spectacular one from Central Europe, check out Hygrocybe calyptriformis, which is as nice as this famous NZ fungus and with almost the same habit. Very rare in Hungary.
If You're interested, please visit the homepage of our fungi club. Lots of species, mostly with photos.
Best regards from Your Hungarian friend, László
