What a lot of Honey fungus. So it is a parasitic fungi - but what a great shot showing them all growing together like this Jose. There must have been well over 50 - or even 100.
How exciting it must have been to find them
Your notes are very interesting too - thank you.

Very nice capture of this Honey Mushroom. Intresting to know about their longivity. I've not seen this before.
Thanks for sharing
I always thought Honey fungus lived off dead wood, so that is interesting in your notes to read it is parasitic and will kill its living host plant because it lives off both alive and dead.
Lovely use of fill flash, shows the caps and skirts below the caps, not to bright, keeps the natural colour, nicely done.
I did check the histogram on your photo and there is room to move the middle to light tone up a little. As always it is individual preference on the lighting of our images. I have done a workshop for you just as a suggestion, again, individual preference.
Slight sharpen would help bring out the detail in the caps and stalks also.
Beautiful bunch in such good condition, well seen.

this is a very exciting and interesting fungus. Beautifully layered and very details and sharp. Wonderful light control and well composed in diagonal setting.

I really like this composition, a very attractive group of mushrooms, and one of my favorite species, both to photograph and to eat.
However, the image has a strong, green cast to it, that's my only complaint, and I addressed that with a workshop posting where I corrected the color, also increased contrast just a little, using the Levels adjustment for both, in Photoshop CS2, hope you don't mind.
