Hi Paul,
I fund some Fungi by us, it was Ganoderma lucidum young species.
Very nice photo, TFS!

Hi Paul,
Ganoderma lucidum (Curtis) P. Karst., very typical specimen. The exposure is OK, there are details on the whites, no blown out patches - but the colors seem a bit pale. A slight dose of color saturation would have been added. Be careful with grass-blades / branches also, they are capable of ruining the composition partially. Make a bit of "gardening" before doing a fungi shot like this - probably sounds ridiculous, but using a scissor helps a lot. At least to me, so there's one always in my photo bag.
Paul, thank you for sharing the pic, have a great festive season. Best regards, László
