These fungi are amazing to me, as I have never seen any yellow fungi at my place. It grows on the burnt stump of a mango tree.
sorry that I can identify it.

Hello Foozi,

Excellent photo of this interesting mushroom.
Beautiful colours with fantastic detail.
Lighting and composition are good.

Ciao Foozi, splendid fungi with strange color, wonderful sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Foozi!
Interesting and very strange yellow mushrooms :) I like low POV. The species has very original shape. It would be good (also for ID) to know something more about it, eg. its size :)
All the best from Poland,

Thanks and best regards,

Hi Foozi !

Unbelievable! Crazy!
A splendid macro!
Excellent colors and contrast on the measure.
Nor I ever saw yellow mushrooms!
Have a beautiful day,

Hello Foozi
WoW ! this fungies are superb, they looks like little lamps with her yellow hats
very great composition, colors and wonderful sharp details
excellent shot
greetings Jacqueline

What a beauty!
Very well seen and framed, my friend Foozi!

Hello Foozi,
What a great find.
You've photgraphed these yellow fungi perfectly.
They are quite different to any I have seen before so I can't identify them either.
I hope you still have a mango tree left.
They are the yummiest fruit!

Salam Foozi,

This fungi looks like lollipop and making my mouth waters. Most colorful mushrooms or toadstools are poisonous but you have perfected the color and composition here really well. Top class beauty with stunning selective focusing. I like it and TFS.

Hello Foozi,
Indeed amazing colours. Great harmonious and warm colours in this photo. Sharpness and details are very good. Excellent low POV, composition, DOF and OOF BG.

Hello Foozi !
These bright yellow mushrooms are so beautiful ! They are like jewels on the rotting stump of the tree. You have captured them with excellent details, but I also like your composition, the natural colos, the POV. Very well done !

Hi Foozi.
You are right. They are really amazing. I love wonderful coloration of these small creatures. You have pictured them brilliantly. I like reflection on the hats of the fungi. Richly coloured surrounding are also very impressive. Nice close-up. My warm wishes and TFS.

Hello Foozi again,

Wonderful yellow fungi, again a tropical specie which I can't identify, although this time I at least have a clue. :) Except for the cap color, it strongly reminds me to the New Zealandian specie Leratiomyces erythrocephalus from Strophariaceae family. This is for sure something from this family; if it was growing here in Europe I should say this must be a closed relative of Stropharia squamosa, but with tropical fungi I have to be more careful. So, at least You know the family now. :)

Congrats again, nice shot, maybe a little (but a very little only) oversaturated, but the fungi themselves are very suggestive. Tfs, cheers, László
