Mycenae Amongst the Moss

By chase
Just taking the bins out this evening ready for emptying tomorrow, I spotted these wee fungi in a lump of cress-moss.Despite fast failing light I grabbed the camera & got down & dirty Wink
The bg is my garden path.
Lit by evening light & a small gold reflector just to add a wee bit extra...actually it was an old crumpled up piece of gold crafting card that I keep in my camera bag Blush

Not much time for photography these days,I am eagerly awaiting the imminent arrival of my new Grandson,plus a load of other 'family' stuff that needs sorting out.
I will catch up with everyone sooner rather than later...I promise Wink
Thanks for taking the time to drop by.
Janet xx

This really is a first rate fungi shot; great to see a description and full EXIF too Wink Nice at f11 to get the path so blurred. Only thing I don't like is the fact I didn't take this one Smile Seriously ... wonderful.

A quality image as ever Janet. Glad you found a moment to take it when your head must be full of the other stuff. Good luck with the forthcoming birth and I hope your parents are doing ok. Best wishes, Fiona

Funghi images are not something I normally get too excited about but the this is exceptional. The quality of photography is absolutely superb Janet. I have given my UA today but this deserves lots of them.
