Thanks for your kind words.
The problem was to find the right ones on the right place, as Adrian explained this are often in places where you cannot be confortable to play with them, or you dont have enough light, as I dont like flash with mushrooms. Here I used a very diffuse one to get rid of shadows ang get light to spores, but most is natural.
Also when you find some good ones the spores are not in the correct moment. I tryed 2 times before and the above factors where not good.

Yestarday I found this ones, perfect spore condition, and some late sun raised shutter velocity so I tryed and this is my 7th. hit.
It is difficult to calculate, as my camera has a delay between you press he button and the shot, so I used auto-shutter, calculated with the beeb,beeb sound, and had luck!
I got some beautiful ones also without the stick and spores flying gently, but not as spectacular as this.
