This is Pholiota Squarrosa. Many thanks to Siegfried (siggi), Laurens (euroblinkie) and Ron (tuslaw) for ID!!!
Today I had a day off (unfortunatelly only one :) )
I went to the forests (two places). Unfortunatelly there were almost no fungi. This "fungi season" is the worst this year in my area. But fortunatelly I found such an interesting object.
Thanks for visiting.

Hello Maciek,
What a beauties! Splendid photo in very beautiful colours and great sharpness. Taken from a very good POV. Excellent DOF and composition. There was no wind, I suppose.

Witaj Macku,
Piekna gromadka Ci sie trafila. Ladnie skadrowane, super kolory. Bardzo podobne do luskwiakow ale nie jestem pewna.

Bonjour Maciej,
Je t'invite en France et en Normandie, découvrir nos forêt et nos champignons.
Ton image est très belle et les couleurs soignées.
J'en profite pour te joindre à mes photographes favoris.

No niestety sezon grzybowy tego roku przepadl. Ta gromadka jest fotogeniczna i ladnie ja pokazales ale do zjedzenia raczej sie nie nadaje.
Pozdrawiam, Pawel

Hello Maciej,
Looks interesting this bunch of Pholiotae! Natural and well taken picture which transmits well the special shape of this parasitic mushroom. Pleasant mix of vegetation, wood and dry leaves.
Kind regards

great clump, TFS Ori

Soberbios colores y buenas luces a pesar de su potencia.
Bien marcados los volúmenes y texturas. Composición casi perfecta.

Hello Maciej,
very lively wild fungi shown in good natural environment. The cap is so sharp with its thorny like growths. Exciting view in good clarity and sharpness.
Excellent natural presentation.


Bonjour Maciej,
Très belle macro valorisant bien les sujets, dans leur environnement, sous une bonne lumière par l'appréciation de la finesse des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Maciej,

The vegetation and the fallen tree are framing well the fungi. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Pholotia Squarrosa. The afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
