[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends in TN,

Day 1.
I spotted this little mushroom (about 2cm in diameter) in the morning on my way out and decided to capture it when I was back to my garden. It was raining until evening and I noticed the cup drooped.

Day 2.
I was surprised that the mushroom sprung back to life in the morning that I made this capture. By noon, this little fungus was flat on the ground.

Another view from the top in my WS.

Thanks for viewing!

Lovely image of this elegant little bachelor taken from ground level friend Jusni! I can almost imagine you laying on the moist grass! Bravo, you demonstrating perfectly your dedication and love for photography and Nature with this shot. However, my advice is to use higher shutter speed. Camera shake is a reality here, and if you enlarge the image further the result will be less than satisfying! Push bravely the ISO to higher number! Your wonderful D80 can handle with easy ISO 800 for example! I am sure you know that! Amazing composition, colors and very interesting and simple short note! Bravo!

Salam Jusni,
a lively capture and the composition is exciting. I like its brown colour against the green grass of your home garden.
The long stem is the beauty that gives a lanky and tall view.
Such a dramatic depth of this early morning shot. The dews on the grass is very exciting too.


Hi Jusni,
This fungus most probably a Conocybe, a huge genus with many species, but most of them are absolutely impossible to identify without microscopical analysis. About the photo: it isn't so bombastic as a lot others of you, because the focus wasn't taken to the closest square centimeters of the cap, so the core of the composition lacks sharpness. Everything else seems OK though, maybe except for some out of focus grass-blades in the foreground. For photographing fungi growing on a field, using scissor before taking the click is essential, I'm more and more sure about this. Even sounds ridiculous first, but worth a try by my opinion. Scissor is an important object in my photo bag, too. :) If you do the gardening with care, it won't be seen on the photo you supported the scene this way, but the composition becomes more effective.
Have a great Christmas, friendly regards, László
