Woodland Bonnets

By chase
Possibly Mycena alcalina which generally grows on conifer stumps, I could well be wrong as Shrooms in this genus are all so very similar and difficult to tell apart.

Taken in available daylight in my local woodland, I used a small diffuser to try and stop some of the light reflecting on the caps and a lump of gold card to push some light onto the wood.
The bg is the woodland floor/leaf litter.
No 'gardening', the leaf was already posed, waiting for me.
I do like the combination of the tree stump and the moss.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Janet, we can earn so much from all the techniques you use to make the most of indoor or outdoor images.
Fungi are so reflective so a diffuser is a great idea.
The gold card adds warmth.
Thank you for sharing your ideas.
