And Then He Kissed Her

By chase
Another trip into my local woods, so very wet and boggy but plenty of 'shrooms.Good job I had my trusty wellies on !!

My most favourite Fungus, Candle Snuff/ Stags' Horn, Xylaria hypoxylon, found on a mossy branch.
I find it difficult to get a good image of these as they are usually in large groups and without image stacking it's hard to get hem in focus with a nice bg Sad
I was pleased with these two, didn't notice him giving her a kiss until I saw the image on screen...made me smile.
A little 'gardening' on site for a tidy up. Was lucky enough to get a half decent, natural bg.

Lit by daylight with the help of a small diffuser to stop some of the harsher light hitting the tips.

Raffle converted in Lightroom, bit of a crop and levels adjusted in Photoshop.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods very welcome.

"she" even seems to be blushing as well, JanetSmile
Another example (one earlier) of its not what you look at, it's what you see.
