Porcelain fungus...

By Greyheron
I came across some newly emerged Porcelain fungus late last week while out walking with my dog in South Weald Country Park. Returning today saw them all grown up and looking wonderful in the morning sunshine. Spent a couple of hours selecting some of the 'special' ones to photograph Wink [they are, of course, all very special Wink ]

The 75mm Olympus lens had a 10mm extension tube fitted.

My thanks go to: Janet, Jenn, Ivana, Ade, Vikram, Carole and Brian for their valued User Awards on my last image Smile

My thanks also go to the team for their equally valued HC - cheers, guys Smile
