Nice colours but I don't like the tight cropping you have chosen, personally I like to see something of the habitat it occupies.

As to Id some fungi are imposable to name from a photo there been little to suggest what genus it belongs to. In fact the lack of such brings me to suggest Tricholoma :)

The undulated cap can be the result of age or environmental effect.

Hi Stephen,

Your good macro shows Rhodocollybia butyracea (Bulliard: Fries) Lennox, in some books with name Collybia butyracea (Bulliard: Fries) Kummer, a very common specie all over the world.

Marco the master has already given you the clue, but here is my late contribution
Cropped too close this one for my personal taste, otherwise a nice shot.
Regards, Felipe.
