I love this type of "solo" shot.
Well composed but maybe a tripod would have helped the clarity.

Hi Roos.
To get a good ident on a fungus a lot of information is needed, as there are a lot of species. In this case I would search in the Hygrocybe family at first sight.
It is a pretty one, with great colours.
A tric for fungi: if you focus the stem inestead of the cap, the DOF axis will be on the middle of the fungus, getting most of it into focus. In this case only the part of the cap near to the cam is really in focus.
If you want to see nice fungi shot made with an IXUS you can visit TAZ (Christian POURRE) gallery. Regards, and my late welcome to TN.

great colors

There is not enough proof, but it looks alike hygrocybe miniata.

Some pof problem and disturbing bg. I think you can get a better mushroom photo next time.

See you soon...
