[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I enjoy rainy season this time. I went around in my locality to try to discover new fungi. I have never done this so far in my life. It is the mushrooming love for nature's gift have mould me into this feeling.
I came under a flowering tree with white ants' mound/nest under it. I saw this yellow headed fungus cropped out beautifully. I have never seen it yet and the beauty of each and every fungi gives me good awareness and appreciation to the beauty that surrounds me here.
Hope you like this fungi as well as my shot.

Hello Foozi,
Excellent composition again! Amazing the way the fungi is curving its way away from the tree. Very good also your choice to include the grasses on the right, gives dynamism to your composition. Beautiful colors too.
You become a great fungi-fan!
Kind regards

This is a wonderful capture with excellent sharpness,details and colors.Well done.Thanks for sharing.

Hi Foozi,

The green leaves are framing well the fungus. The macro view is showing the details and colors of the yellow headed fungus. It is clear and sharp. The surrounding light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello Foozi,
A top class macro of this fungus taken in fine lighting from a great POV with excellent sharpness. Nice dark BG that providess fine contrast.
I wonder if the hat is like this or whether it opens out when mature?
Thanks and best regards,

Excellent close up, very sharp, vivid colors and nice light,
TFS, regards,

Hi Foozi,

nice to read you like also fungi's.
another specie that I don't know and so I can't help with the ID.
Good pov and composition.
Maybe a little overexposure on the fungi's hat?

Fine warm colours.


Hi Foozi again,

I see "mushroom mania" embraced You also. Excellent. :) It's so good You're an experienced photographer and You can capture these beauties of Mother Nature so well, sometimes from unusual POV's, and a lot of Your fungi images are very pleasant to look at. This one isn't an exception. Great exposure, natural colors in the darkness of the rain forest, and sharpness is again second to none. Fantastic image.

I'm also glad because this is one of those tropical species I can identify - it's so unique and difficult to confuse with other species. Your pic shows Leucocoprinus birnbaumii, which is a common specie in the tropical / subtropical area, growing on the ground or on straw - sometimes was also found in Europe in glaqss-houses, but very rarely. Not edible.

Tfs, regards, László

Hello Foozi
