Mycena Mushrooms

By viscostatic
Two tiny mycena mushrooms growing on the forest floor. I couldn't get any light in the background but I think they they show up quite well against the darkness.

Thank you to all who viewed, voted and commented yesterdy with special thanks to Jenn, Peter and Kate for their awards. A day of rain in Scotland today but the forecast promises better weather for tomorrow.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that some of those mycenas are bioluminescent?

A beautiful duo Phil. Odd name, a heck of a long way from Greece.

Well I'm not going in to the forest at night to find out!

You could just nibble them and experience ' the glow '. Lovely little mushrooms for the elves. TG
