Not the most interesting of Fungi species I know (I'm still looking for the elusive Fly Agaric!!), but I liked the Autumnal colours in this shot.

Thanks for looking.

HI Sharon, that wood wouldn't be anywhere close to Swindon by any chance would it??

This does have a lovely warm Autumnal look Phil. The fungi projects well from a very similarly coloured b/ground and you have got good detail on the cap. Like the angle too.
