One of the Waxcaps but don't know the exact ID, any ideas?

Sorry for the lack of notes but without an ID its not easy!

Taken from ground level so got very wet knees - par for the course in fungi fotos!

Hi Matt,
this is wonderful. What a intensive colour and I like it so much, that it's wet, there are nice reflections and they bring life to the shot. Excellent sharpness, very good job, thanks and bye

Hi Matt,
I know what you mean about the wet knees. I too have done many of these.
Great angle.
Nice composition.
Great work

Hi Matt,

your photo shows a specimen of Hygrocybe chlorophana (Fries 1821) Wünsche 1877 = Hygrocybe euroflavescens Kühner 1976.
Its main characteristics are:
1) pileus with yellow colours, hemispherical and never conical
2) thick gluten on the surface of the pileus
3) stipe nearly dry
It is like Hygrocybe glutinipes (J.E. Lange 1940) R. Haller 1956 which is different because it has gluten also on the stipe, is very smaller and has deccurrent gills.

Nice photo Matt. I like its details and beautiful colors. It may be some Hygrocybe, perhaps H. chlorophana?

Nicely done Matt, I especially like the glistening wet look of the mushroom. The composition is very nice too and I also like how the stem is lit - giving a transluscent feel. I'm not good on fungi IDs but it looks like you have had some good suggestions.

Hello Matt,
Wonderful shot!!. I love this intensive yellow and the incredible details.
Excellent job
