Here we have another cluster of Hypolomas, I think they are fasciculare looking at some more bigger ones around, but could also be sublateritium.

This one was taken with diffuse flash in a very shady place. To get the background dark and get rid of the ugly wet soil and rotten roots , I forced a high speed this time with low level flash, so the flash only light the close subject, and selected the level of "diffuse" by unfolding my handkerchief (high tech diffuser) until desired result. This one was finally made with only one layer of paper, that is the tissue totally unfolded :D

Hope you like!

Wonderful shot!
Very good colour and details, look like the bread roll. Good against dark background.

Great color, Felipe. I agree with Chi Liu about the bread loaf - it might even be an iced doughnut. Great handling of the light with the diffuser.
