[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hier, le 21 mai... deux champignons sortaient de la mousse... Je ne les avais jamais vu; c'est sans aucun doute un jeune couple!

Qui connait l'espčce de ce champignon de printemps?
Sont-ce des Hygrocybes conica ??

Ils ont 3 cms de hauteur.

Bien ŕ vous et merci pour l'éventuelle réponse :)

Bonjour briGitte !

Super macro!
Bien que le printemps est arrivé. Nous avons donc plus de matériel pour les photos!
Excellent capture.
Un beau jour,

Hi Brigitte,
Nice photo I like the colours and POV. I belive you are right with your ID these been Hygrocybes conica

Hello Brigitte,
excellent capture, sharp details,nice red and beautifull background,

Bonjour Brigitte,

Your ID specification (and Clive's) was right: this is either Hygrocybe conica or H. nigrescens (the difference's only microscopical), quite common on fields (both in lowlands or in the mountains) where animals like cows, sheeps, horses etc. don't live, because animal manure is chemically very unfavourable to each Hygrocybe species. Sometimes one dropping's enough to kill these fungi on the whole field for (no joke!) at least 40 years.

Photographically: not a bad photo, colors are good, but if You photograph small field fungi, You have to make "gardening" to avoid out-of-focus grass-blades and other disturbing elements. Don't be afraid of using a scissor (before making the shot): there's one in my photo bag, too, and I got the idea from another TN-member. :)

Best regards from Hungary, László

Hi briGitte,
lovely shot of these two fungi. Beautiful and striking colours that really stand out from the soft background.
well composed with great sharpness.
