Had this shot from Thorndon Park for a couple of weeks now, but I wasn't sure about uploading it. I couldn't make my mind up whether to crop down to isolate either the single or trio of fungi. In the end I've decided to show both of them, I think that the space inbewteen sort of works.

Thanks for looking

The title certainly justifies the composition in this really nice mushroom shot.

Very good - you clearly understood the potential here and made the most of it.
Great work.
I am really intrigued by how many people are now using a telephoto for their close-ups - Epping was quite a revelation.
