[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this group of Fungi ( ID unknown) on an old rotting stump covered with moss.

These fungi were no more than 1 cm tall. Notice the moss and the spore heads.

Can someone help with the ID.

I rested the camera on the stump to take the shot. I had to take a few to manage a still shot. In the end I used time delay so I didn't shake the camera when I pushed the shutter button.

I used ACDsee to crop and resize the image.

Yeah Sue, this looks like very dense area of town ;-) You found nice place and photographed it very well. I'm not sure about composition - maybe cropping upper part of picture would help a little? Anyway - good place, good photo!

Hi Sue, a wonderful world you let us look at.
I was waiting a few minutes, but no gnom or fairy came into your photo.
But the spirit is still there, I like it, thanks

Hello Sue!
Very nice capture.Colors,details,lighting and composition are wonderful.TFS...:-)

Hi Sue, it looks a pleasant village full of cottages with trees growing in the streets. I have done a quick workshop to crop it a bit more and to brighten it a bit. I hope you like it. For such small fungi I think you have done a really great job. Well shown, thank you.

Hi Sue. Won't you take me to, Fungi Town - well, it looks like you have! What a great view of a part of the world we so often trod on. This is a beautiful composition. It's interesting to see the young shoots coming up throughout the shot. Fascinating!

Hi Sue
What an awesome gallery you have on TN ... I am very happy that I dropped by
nice pictures ... loved them
cheers ... sarju

Hi Sue,
I love the shot. Nice colors and detail. I have not found the little elves yet. I love the title. The bad part is now I will have this song called funky town running thru my head.(Lots of empty space to run in)

Hi Sue,
Nice shot, although Janice's level and crop corrections are right. But the scene itself is awesome.
Living in Europe, with very different fungal flora than in NZ, I can't make a proper ID, but it's clear Your species belongs to Masrasmiaceae family.
Tfs, best regards from Hungary, László
