You're right, momentarily slime moulds aren't fungi. :) Actually they differ a lot from "real" fungi (ascomycetes, basidiomycetes etc.). This species You photographed is quite common.
Photo itself is beautiful, great camera angle, colors and sharpness. I tried to shoot this one several times, but none of my pics became as good as Yours. Congrats and tfs.
As You know, I can't write a critique without mentioning any problems. :) Official name of this species is Lycogala epidendron, not epidendrum. Anyway, not only Your photo but also the theme You created is great, interesting.
Friendly regards, László

Hi Felipe & Cristina,
Wonderful to see you posting your beautiful fungi images again.
I did not know this about Lycogala.I had no idea it was a Slime Mold.
This is a perfect photo of this colony.
Very nice work.
Thanks for sharing.

It is a pity I cannot rate your workshop because I found that image very interesting and the colours ever so beautiful.
Your image of today reminds me of a lot of oranges stacked together. This is yet another beautiful fungus shared with us. This fungus has markings on the hood with the rough texture pleasantly visible. The dried branch on which it is growing creates a natural effect. I like the almost full framed composition. The colours are warm and wonderful. I always thought a mushroom is a mushroom until I started with Trek Nature, then I realised how far from wrong I was because I then only discovered the wonderful world of fungi. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Ciertamente, es un "no hongo como un hongo" (je je je... eso mientras los naturalistas discuten!) muy interesante!... aquí no he visto nada parecido!... y la foto en el workshop es aún más asombrosa! que de cosas las que tiene la naturaleza!... gracias por permitirnos ver esta. Saludos, Feliz semana, Jesús

Yes, it is your firm style of fungi shooting. Brilliant details of an amazing subject with group of charming creatures. Colours. Lights, blurriness of the BG are also superb. Shot at whole is very nice and pleasant for look.
