Ok, no more spiders and gulls :-D

This is a spectacular mushroom which is quite common in Finland.
I am always happy to find these beauties, they are quite small but amazing.
ID is Calocera viscosa - thanks to sibiricus!!!

Hola Shir,
Pues sí que es un hongo ardiendo en pleno Julio! Bellos colores, luz y detalles.
Saludos, José M.

Splendid shot.
Great pov and colors.
Thank you for sharing.

P.S. Add pts tommorow

Hi Shir,
It's not Clavulinopsis, I am pretty sure it's Calocera viscosa (keltasarvikka). Grows typically on decaying wood (underground). This unedible species is usually mixed with Ramaria flava (keltahaarakas) that grows much bigger and is edible when young.
Nice photo, though :-) Beautiful colors.
TFS, Pentti

Bonjour Shir,
Superbe photo qui resitue trčs bien les couleurs flamboyantes de cette trčs belle espčce.

Hi Shir,
Great colorful composition of this mushroom.
Good DOF and POV.
Well done.

Yes, "sibiricus" is right, it's really Calocera viscosa. I found it a few occasions here in Hungary, too. Living on dead pines only. The photo's simply excellent - great colours, sharpness, POV... TFS, regards, László

Hi Shir,

That's an exquisite image, everthing works perfectly for my tastes: composition, very sharp focus, perfect exposure, brilliant color and an interesting subject.
