Many thanks to everyone for the interest shown in yesterdays Stonechat, I am delighted to have received the EC from Pete and a user award from Trev (achieverswales) thanks to you both.

A complete change of theme for today, but topical because its that time of year for Fungi.

These were taken in dense forest with very low light levels, so I employed my Nikon close up flash system to shoot them, using four mini flash heads, one on the lens and three on mini tripods. Hope you enjoy
