(ahem, mushroom identification makes me crazy. I'm not entirely fond of our guidebook)

Haha! I agree with you there, I love taking pictures of mushrooms but I never quite get around to identifying them. In some cases it's really difficult. Great picture by the way. love your blog!

Take care!

You have to get down low and dirty to take photos of fungus. The first one looks as if it is slightly glowing from the inside. Well-done!

great photos.

I expected to see a caterpillar smoking a pipe sitting on one of those!

Happy WW! Come check out some of my photo submissions for the Disney Treasures flickr group: http://tinyurl.com/ya7rk33

Beautiful mushroom pictures, but if you're not sure, just leave it there for others to enjoy.

I've always been a bit fascinated by the fungus since studying them one summer as a kid in summer school.

There's a whole other world down there under the "awnings". Beautiful captures!

Beautiful tiny little mushroom. I love them, but can identify only a few. Oh well, I still love them.

Rosie said...

oh I can just imagine how you got those photos! They are fantastic little toadstools or are they mushrooms? I love their shape.

Beautiful photos even if identifying it isn't easy (and I hear you on mushrooms and ID frustration--because I'm right there with you).

Piyush said...

Oh these are lovely

Stephanie V said...

I love the look of most mushrooms...there are a few that aren't quite as pretty. But your photo is very lovely with the tiny tendrils of moss swirling at the bottom.
I don't find those books all that helpful, either. Usually the one I think I've found is only indigenous to impossibly far-off countryside. But I found it!

Maia said...

Your mushroom macros are beautiful and the moss details are so perfect in the second one. Nice work!

Robyn Jones said...

These are great pictures! I can honestly say, I have never thought of taking a picture of a mushroom, but it makes for a cool shot...

joey said...

Stunning photos ... kudos! (Know what it takes and what we all look like shooting from the earth ... love the thought of those watching us!)

Dianne said...

it has such a magical quality
as though Alice will peek out from behind

Jay said...

It's rather lovely, though, isn't it? Especially with those fronds of moss delicately draped in front! Gorgeous photo!

Lovely littel Fungi, love to photograph Mushrooms. Could imagine them in children's book illustrations~

**"Liza"** said...

Awesome photo. Love them! Ohh,that mushroom reminds me of the old style haircut..;) Happy WW!

Carver said...

I love mushrooms but am hopeless at identifying them. I like the ridges on these and how well they show in the shot.

Müge said...

Excellent macros! But me neither, I can't identify them. Have a perfect new day! Ciao! :-)

Jama said...

Fascinating shot!

Kala said...

Gorgeous photos. The focus and depth of field are awesome. I have yet to get a decent mushroom image.

LadyFi said...

Tiny and absolutely gorgeous with its golden crown.

Kerri said...

Oh, these are SUPERB!! Great captures!

I love little fungi, your images are grand.
