[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo I took near where I work also. It was a VERY small mushroom, I almost missed seeing it. Only about 1 inch tall, the color is what captured my eye it was so yellow. I've even captured some kind of bug or wormlike creatures on the cap of the mushroom. As usual I don't know what kind of mushroom it is.

Cropped, Levels, Resized, Framed, Sharpened

Thanks to Marco for this identification!
This is Bolbitius titubans var. olivaceus (Gillet 1992) Arnolds 2003. Its main features are the yellow colour, the weakness and the roughness on the cap.
The roughness on the cap differentiate it from the typus specie Bolbitius titubans (= Bolbitius vitellinus).
In old or not scientific books yuo can find it with names:
- Bolbitius vitellinus var. variicolor (Atkinson 1900) Krieglstainer 1991
- Bolbitius variicolor Atkinson 1900
both these names are synonymous of Bolbitius titubans var. olivaceus which is the right name.

Hi Lori,
a beautiful capture, the light is wonderful and you set the little funghus in a beautiful frame. Great sharp details and brilliant colors.

Hi Lori
Very nice capture of this beautiful little fungus. I do not know much about fungi, but I think I can recognise a good photo when I see one.
Your composition is very good, placing the fungi slightly to the right and leaning it into the frame. The lovely colours of the fallen leaves in the surrounding BG enhanced the plant very nicely, so did the burst of green created by the blades of grass.
The DOF is great showing nice details on the fungus body. The exposure was fine, with only a slight nit in the OE on the top of the fungi. I have attempted to address this in a workshop - please have a look and I hope you like it. It was more done out of the need to gain some experience than to do any major corrections.
Very well done and TFS.
Regards
Loot
