Hi Steve,

Good picture from these fungi's.


Hi Steve,

Interesting species, great contrast between light yellow fungi and very dark BG, good sharpness. This mushrooms looks like jelly-bears ... nice shot


Hi Steve,
I am sure there is nothing like that in the Old World. Just amazing! Excellent capture of the jellies with good composition, sharp details and bright natural colours.

Namastay Steve,
A nice capture of this beautiful fungi. Very well composed with sharp details and a nice POV. Thanks a lot for sharing.


This is different Steve..
Are these the glow-in-the-dark kind? ;-}
Nice detail, color, and exposure.
Good interest with the various fungi forms/shapes seen from this POV & comp.
Well done,

Sorry!My computer is acting up on me again, this time I think it's got some virus!
Great shot!

Hi steve

Great capture of the lovely little yellow jellies. You'll have to add up how many species you've recorded from Arnold River, must be well over 50. A great place.
Good long exposure
Excellent sharpness
Great composition
Good POV and DOf

Bellissima macro, eccellenti POV e taglio compositivo, ottima definizione, perfetta esposizione e ottima resa dei colori e delle sfumature della luce nonostante il lungo tempo di ripresa. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

These gem-like beauties are something I have seen for the first time, Steve.
And there is an entire colony of them you have included in this beautifully composed frame.
Great work once again.
Thanks and take care.

What unusual fungi!
I love the translucent yellow colouring.
Great composition.
Excellent sharpness.
There was a hold up at the post office so the adapter may take a bit longer to get to you... I hope this is alright.

Very best regards!

Hi Steve,
incredible, these mushrooms, incredible, your shot, incredible lighting, marvellous this all. My compliments!

Best regards

This species of Fungi (Golden jelly cones)happen to be a favorite of mine, they look so cool when light hits them! Composition, DOF, focus, lighting and sharpness are all Great! Your POV is really nice too!

Hi Steve,

I don't know what You're doing now, but I miss You MF... If You aren't here, who will wave the flag of NZ fungi?!

This photo's quite good. Someone may say You had luck, because the species in Dacrymycetaceae family are quite colorful (yellow or orange), but I also like the composition with the focused fungi in the upper third, and the almost panoramic format. Great job, well done.

I hope You'll return soon with new fantastic fungi posts, I wish You the very best, László
