Psathyrella piluliformis.

This one is the same as the one in my LAST POST.
Luc said that they looked like Stroumpf. Well Luc, here you have the juniors of the family. I am afraid they are not blue, so sorry for that :D

I got the ident of the previous shot, thanks to this one, they are quite unique when small, but not when they grow.

I like very much this scene. They were 1 meter far from the previous ones. After removing carefully eucalyptus dead leafes and branches around the base of the tree, this world of moss and fungi appear to my cam. I love this panoramic macros. Take into acount that I was placed 32 Cm. from the subject and half zoom (x2.5 aprox.). The DOF is still a bit short. This are very small, the tallest I guess about 3 Cm.

Hope you like!

Hi Felipe
Somehow, this reminds me of Xmas - tiny bells, lovely mood and muted colours, and then the strange green, leaves, like xmas tree leaves. TFS

Hola Felipe. Could also be Snow White and MUCH MORE than the Seven Dwarfs. I like their shapes. It looks like fungi that will never grow with an open cap. Colors are very good and, yes, Callie, it reminds kind of Christmas decoration. Again Felipe, your winning exposure combination;-) It's noted for next autumn.

;-) Stroumpfs, tiny bells, Seven Dwarfs. Your images are very "évocatives" and "féériques", Felipe. I think that this one is also suggestive.
All the characteristics of an excellent photo. And the poetry in more.
A great work. I like very much the narration of the making-off.
Thanks a lot... I am still smiling :-)

Hi Felipe, I know I recently have got alcohol deviation but your picture looks like drunken kindergarden :-) Just joking :-)
Very good scene with perfect DOF and sharpness. Like others said - something magical, like fairy tales from childhood. Big thanks for sharing!

Superb image Felipe. I must admire what you have captured here although I know nothing about them, this a perfect image with good DOF and POV. Excellent work TFS

Fantastic shot Felipe, I love the textures and scenery. These look very much like a species of magic mushrooms! Great work.
