Porcelain Fungi on a fallen beech tree: V 2 is posted just to give an indication of the jungle I had to negotiate and perhaps explains why I came home rather mucky, and at the same time shows where V 1 was situated.

My thanks to all who commented on Yellow on Black, and with special thanks to Carol {Caziwinkle's} for her cherished User Award.

Ronnie.

This is a fine example of a wonderful image but not showing the whole story behind it, I often think that I wish the viewer knew what i went through to get the shot.

Nice to see the bigger picture.

Beautiful work Ronnie, the little family of mushrooms clinging to the tree are quite delightful.
I also love V2 with that bough hanging down and forming a wonderful diagonal across the woodland scene.
I can well imagine how mucky you got getting into the mushrooms.
