You obviously had good winter rains. The whole environment appears like moist jelly!
The fungi look like a prearranged ballet - amazing to see them in a row...
The depth of field is tremendous: every little bit of fungi as well as the ground cover in perfect focus!
The natural colours are a great bonus; the whole image is a pleasure to view.
Enjoy the rest of your week-end

Bonjour Steve, another excellent shot of fungi, the light is beautiful. I like the very low pov giving us a chance to become the fungi as well or feel what it is to be one...
well, nice picture, beautiful composition. Glad to see your work here.

Nice to see you back in action again. I hope all is well and that you have many wonderful photos to show.
I like you low POV in this photo and the way you grouped these fungi into one composition. The light is well controlled and you captured them with pretty good detail.

Something always have your photos of fungi, this great power to convey the surrounding conditions! ... this picture is a clear example of that! Good job! ... This makes me remember 2009, the first time I saw photos of fungi from you, I could almost see the climate in which the photos were taken.
TFS, Regards, Jesús

such a moist caps and lively softness rendered in this special shot. how i like you produced a very low angle showing the surroundings. i like your mossy view of the trees and the foreground.
what a place to enjoy mosses and lichen, and not forgetting the lovely fungi.
nice view in a well composed shot.

Even the closest fruitbodies became a very little bit out of focus, a magical image without doubt due to the lights and the great warm colors. You show the habit of the species very well. Tfs this pleasant view MF.
I don't really understand the taxonomical infos in your note. You wrote "several species belonging to the genus Collopus..." - beside this, now invalid synonym there is / was only ONE species in this genus ever: Collopus subviscosus (G. Stev.) E. Horak (valid taxon). Current name of Your species is Mycena epipterygia (Scop.) Gray (within Mycena genus it belongs to the section Hygrocyboideae), and as You correctly wrote, an extremely variable species with cosmopolitan distribution.
