[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I really dont expect to see fungi growing in a very cold weather, at least this time of the year in UK.
When I saw it growing well under a tree, I spare no chnce at all.
As Im in a foreign country, even the streets are not familiar so what a helpless man Im in identifying the fungi.

Hi Foozi. Welcome to England. I think your picture of the pink fungi is a common Laccaria . But i may be wrong. Taken with good detail and a good low POV.
I am sorry i have no more points today.

Ciao Foozi. Good clarity and contrast with righ chromatic esaltation. Never seen this species. TFS.

Hi Foozi.
Sweet subject. I like how nicely pair of cute mushrooms are looked among the fresh green grass. Excellent low POV and perfect composition of the image. Colours are lovely and DOF is precise. I like light blurriness of the grass on a BG so much against a crisp sharp FG and main subject. Well done and kind regards.

Hi Foozi,

Another wonderful macro contribution from you, my friend! The colors of tthe mushroom is interesting and very well shown. The sharpness and POV are great.

best regards,

Hi Foozi..
So many different kind of fungi in here in parks and forests...I am sure you will see...You catch these very good..Colors and details excellent...Enjoy your trip...

Hello Foozi
this two pink fungis on each side of this image and surrouded from green grass are amazing, the colors are wonderful saturated and the details are superb a very great shot
Have a good night

Hello Foozi,
It must be quite a climatic change for you to get used to in England! Here in Sweden it is even colder and we have snow!
A fine capture of two specimens of this species of fungus contrasting well with the grass in which they grow.
Maybe Nick has the ID but I don't know this species.
I hope you have a successful stay in England. Are you there to study?

Thanks and best wishes,

Hi Foozi!

Many thanks for these fine impressions about your stay in the UK. I like the refreshing and colourful picture very much. Indeed, the colours are surprising. Another surprise is that it seems to be difficult to clearly identify these fungi. At least it's just pleasant to look at them, and that's important, isn't it?

Kind regards


Hi Foozi,

The grass is framing well the fungi. the close-up view is showing the details and colors of the fungi. It is clear and precise. The surrounding light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Foozi,

This is amzing fungi. Never seen something like that in this colour. Superb find. Very well captured too. With Green bg it looks very nice. Very well composed!


Hi Foozi,

Welcome to Europe, and at the same time sorry for missing this nice pic. Right now I'm preparing to my mycology exams (11th of Dec.), so I only have minutes for TN, and not even every day. Your photo shows Laccaria bicolor, unfortunately not a common specie in Hungary, so I've never seen it yet. Edible, but rather worthless.

Great composition only with fungi and grass, it's a pity the fruitbody on the left is a bit oof, at least the cap. But "nomen est omen" - this specie's named "bicolor", and Your photo also became a compo with 2 dominating colors (the specie got the name due to the color combination of pink-rose cap and stem + the light violet gills).

Tfs this beauty, I wish You all the best, László

LOL! Don't pity yourself too much, Foozi, my friend!
I love this shot, I've actually never seen this myself!
Very well done in seeing and sharing it with us, my friend!

Hello Foozi! Amazing topic, good light and colours, perfect exposure and sharpness. Nice capture and frame. Original effect. Good luck!

Superb details on this funghi. Lovely colours. I like saturation and contrast too.
Best wishes,
