My third post of Armillaria mellea known as Honey Mushrooms.

This group was a bit old compared to the previous ones but I really liked the way they were growing on the cut trunk of a tree.

More info can be found in my previous post

Hello Shir,
What a riotous burst of mushroom from that mossy old tree trunk. Great effect and composition. The details and colors are very fine, and the light is good, which is hard to get in a forest.
TFS. ; )

Interesting mushrooms. The way you photographed it makes it look like they are giant mushrooms. Are they? >;)

Hi Shir, very nice this small mushrooms forest in the large forest. Inspirated the camera position on the level of ground, to take the large forest in background. Is a small world in other big one.
Congratulation, Dan
