Hello Felipe,
Beautiful photo in warm autumn colours. The light is gorgeous. Excellent sharpness and taken from a perfect POV. Fantastic composition.

Hola Felipe,
Me imagino que lo más difícil de fotografiar hongos, es hacer que la foto esté acompańada por esa "Sensación de entorno" que las gtuyas tienen a montón! Buen trabajo!.. agradable de ver!
Saludos, Gracias por compartir, Jesús

Hi Felipe,
Even if this was a New Zealand fungi I would find it hard to name.
I've no idea what it might be.
Still,an excellent capture from a good low POV
Great lighting and detail in the gill.
Hope you find out what it is.

Hi Felipe,

Fantastic quality. No question about your exceptional talent and experience in fungi photography.

From these photos + those You sent via e-mail I think this is a small Clitocybe species. Caps of Hygrocybes are more or less conical, but never with a hole on the middle of the cap as one of Your photo shows. But - not surprisingly - I don't know the exact species. Clitocybe sinopica (Fr.) P. Kumm. is somehow similar macroscopically, but that species is growing on burnt soil, and not in late October when the shot was done. Clitocybe squamulosa (Pers.) Fr., another similar species, is growing in pine forests exclusively. Clitocybe glareosa Röllin & Monthoux has exactly the same colors as on your photos - but that one's growing on fields, exclusively on sandy soil, so it doesn't fit to Your photo set either. Final conclusion: I don't know. :(

Best regards, László

Hallo Felipe
Critiquing your images is sometimes really difficult, as it is not always easy to describe the beauty of some of them without running out of words or repeating myself. The combination of colours in the image as a whole is in perfect harmony with one another, and is brought across beautifully. Everything in this image seems to be just right and all I am left to say is: "Great camera work, great photographer, always a pleasure". The shape of this fungi reminds me of a cowboy hat. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
