    It's amazing what is in your local area if you take the trouble to look for it though.

    Stick with mushrooms. Slime Moulds: now, that's true addition.

    I've got shots of the crimson capped ones which have a very similar size and shape
    Pixie Cup Lichen.

    I can only echo what others have already said. Lovely crisp shots. Number two for me I think, I feel I can virtually reach out and touch the moss.

    Thanks! The only post processing was in Lightroom...just Highlights/Shadow tweaks and a touch of sharpening, then a soft vignette to focus the eye in a bit. Nothing fancy!

    I shoot as found first and then 'garden' to clean up giving editors a choice.

    Lovely shots Alan, plenty of detail and lovely colour. The first one might benefit from a slightly different crop so the fungi was less central, but that is being very picky.
    I have dozens of shots with wayward twigs and leaves that definitely 'weren't present' when I took the shot - I still haven't learnt!
    I look forward to more examples

    Great light and colour. The third shot reminds me of golf tee's.

    The last shot is a Lichen species fruiting body as a couple of people have posted.

    I thought the last shot was a set of mouldy golf tees. I'm still not convinced that they aren't!

    A nice set of shots.

    Cracking shots, particularly for hand held.

    The last one is of the fruiting bodies of some kind of Lichen, the golf-tee things are Podetia, which contain (and in this case are covered in) Soridia, the grains which contain the spores of the fungal part of the Lichen. They do look like some kind of Cladonia, but you can't tell from a photo alone.
