Fungus in the Dew

By Paul_Iddon  
Spotted some fungi growing on the grass verge as I ran the wife to work, and daughter to school this morning, so I went back afterwards hoping the early light and moisture didn't drop away and dissipate.

After trying to work out the best angle, I opted for this one where the sunlight was breaking thought the trees t light up the grass and dewdrops as well as a bit of rim lighting on the fungus itself. Not sure what sort it is, perhaps one of the ink-caps?

Anyway, I applied a touch of filter work to give it some extra sparkle and that "fairy light" appearance.

If it worked on not, that's for you to decide. Nothing particularly special - just thought it looked OK.

Agree or not? WDYT?
