Excellent composition of shapes in v1, Ronnie. A fine 'before and after' set, although the after does look like the 'after' on one of my decorating days!! TongueGrin

getting them sharp!
Hope you're well.

Two excellent examples of fungi that can be found in autumn Ronnie, and some super alliteration in your title. I'd hoped to get over to Crickley Hill Country Park again this autumn to snap some of the numerous species that grow in the ancient beech woodland there, alas time has not permitted me to venture out that way.
