Thank you both. I was trying to capture in manual but the light was to dark in shaded areas or to light the sunshine. So I had to capture in Aperture instead. I have been trying to take better photo's using these settings with macro and natural light (with or with out flash). there are loads of them about at the moment over the common.

Thank you both.
We where out for about 3 hours . I got carried away photographing them. Mick (other half) and dogs where helping me find good ones to photograph. Many had been eaten by animals. Deer we think Smile

the mushroom looks like its floating due to the aperture setting you use - looks good
