Well I need a break from painting fences so thought I'd take a moment to upload this shot, I took it a couple of nights ago when walking my dog through a local wood.
It wasn't an altogther wonderful experience as the place was covered in dog poo, lazy owners really spoil it for the rest of us Sad
But looking on the bright side, because I had to keep looking at the ground for the whole walk, I saw this lonely Fly Agoric all on its own Smile.
The light was fading as it was quite late but I just managed to capture this before it really was too dark.

I'm going to have a rest from painting for a while so will try and catch up with you all.

Hope the sun is shining on you too.

Quite early for them, I'd have thought but guess this year with so much rain we'll get to see many a fungi! This is a belter and will take some beating. It seems to be in prime condition, at a perfect stage of growth and the focus used is excellent. A top shot IMHO!

Hope the fence painting is at an advanced stage Annette, your little walk paid off nicely.

Something I want to have a go at later in the year, this mushroom malarky

I think this is the first image I have seen this year too! Well spotted (no pun intended!), and a lovely capture with great focus.
