I found these wonderful toadstools at Brockholes, the local nature reserve on the outskirts of Preston, Lancashire, in the semi-deciduous woodlands. I couldn't see the sprinkling until I examined my image on the screen on my EOS 70D, and more-so, properly when back home at the computer. I'm not sure what it is sprinkled on the caps of the toadstools, but it really made a difference to the image (imagine it without that!).

I used a softbox on a mounted flashgun to balance the strong directional light coming from the left hand side where the sun was breaking through the canopy of trees.
