In The Spotlight

By GillyB    
Not many insects around so donning my wellies I headed into the darkest part of the woods mushroom hunting.

Haven't got a clue what these are but I liked the dappled light highlighting the ones at the back.

Many thanks as always for your time.

Beautifully presented, I think they may be one of the Coprinus but difficult to judge size.

Think I've figured out what they are thanks to Rev2's suggestion - look up coprinus micaceus...? Hope I managed to get one this good Smile

Paul, I was lucky that the sun came through the trees when it did.
Just for the record this was 400 ISO, f11 and 1/15 sec, 0 exp comp and of course a tripod Smile
