I think this is a Russula mairei,or Beechwood Sickener,taken in Laughton Woods.
A poisonous variety that causes sickness if eaten,pretty to look at against the green of the moss but not recommended for your Sunday Breakfast !
This time I used a small piece of aluminium foil to help the light on the stem.

F5.6 manual mode
1/25th sec with tripod
ISO 200
F/L 105mm
W/B cloudy
Pattern metering
Live view used to compose the frame & fine tune the focus.
Raw file converted in C1v4
Curves twiddled with & border added in CS3

Thankyou for taking the time to look...almost finished with this collection,so I guess it's time to go do some more Wink

There is some really wonderful detail in that lovely moss, & also in the stem & the cap, which is a lovely rich colour.
