One of the more sought after mushrooms for culinary purposes - hard to spot but when found is usually in large groups - what I particularly like in this shot is the soft lighting that gives lovely colour saturation and texture. Taken using a light weight bean bag - Right angled finder - reflector - check depth of field - lock the mirror up -click - Gotcha.

Well spotted! We can eat this?! Doesn't look very appetising. You've taken this brilliantly, I like the moss in focus too. Good shot.

Great shot Phil. Reminds me of the Pitcher plants in my study. Nature is so fascinating. Look forward to seeing more of your work in the near future.
