Another shot from Zdrowie Park and another fungus. Again I have no idea about ID. October is in Poland great time for many species of fungi. Together with dry, colorfull leaves they're symbol of Polish Autumn.

No long note today, because we had got election today and I'm watching news on tv non-stop :-)

The way you've captured this against a wonderfully colorful blurry background, and the fact that these fungi are almost perfectly formed, is what makes this so beautiful. Even the mossy tree next to them is lovely. Had I walked past this on a trek through the woods, I might not have thought so, but it's all in the eye of the photographer and how the shot is composed. VERY nicely done!

Hi Grzegorz,
Splendid capture.
Excellent colors, contrast and sharpness.
Very good POV; shot rich in details.
Well done!
Thanks for sharing!
My best regards,
José Roberto

Hi Grzeg,
Absolutely fantastic macro. I just added You to the group of my fave photographers - this tells everything I'm thinking about this image. Bravo.
A Pluteus? I'm not sure at all, unfortunately.
Good luck to Poland to find a reliable government - unfortunately the Hungarian one's nothing but a bunch of idiots. Best regards, László

Hello Grzegorz,

+++ The BG is amazing! I love all the dappled colours. Great composition aswell. A good POV. Excellent detail and texture especially in the bark. Very sharp and crisp.

Hello Grzegorz,
Another splendid capture of fungi against a beautiful autumn colour background. Great sharpness and a very nice composition.
(It sounds as if you've got rid of the "terrible" twins!!)
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Dzieki za kolejne jesienne grzyby. Sam nie mam czasu polazic to przynajmniej sobie popatrze :-)
Jak zwykle wszystko na tak: kompozycja, kolory, aspekty techniczne...

Witam Grzesiu,
Tak troche na czasie wyskoczyles z tym zdjeciem! Dzis juz chyba tylko jeden z "blizniakow" powinien byc na fotce przedstawiony ;) No ale dosc tych aluzji politycznych! Swietna fotka, ponownie z cieplymi, jesiennymi barwami. Rewelacyjne swiatlo przy tylko 5 przyslonie dolo naprawde udany efekt koncowy. A swoja droga jakie duze byly te grzybki? Pewnie nie jakies specjalnie wyrosniete co? ;)

Hi Grzegorz.
Your fungi series is wonderful. This picture is sample of true art work. Great subject, framing and composition. Colours, combination of sharpness and blurriness are wonderful. Well done and TFS.

Czesc Grzesiu
Piekna delikatna fotka. Kolory tla sa wspaniale, glebia ostrosci idealna. Super kompozycja
Bardzo, bardzo mi sie podoba

What a lovely capture of this pair, the DOF is perfect and the BG just encharming. Everything makes a lovely composition. I missed a lot of shot this months... about my new casa the 1st. improvements are over, and we are moving at the moment. I still don't believe it, it is a dream for us :) I will send you some photos soon.
And how is Michal? I asked you some months ago but not reply.
I am glad we met today, MF.
Best wishes, Felipe.
