The caps look like a certain type of sweets we get in uk. Nice composition, very interesting fungi, good composiiton and colours. Well done Chris.

Chris, I don't think I've seen this "flavor" here before. Interesting color these Agarics have...maybe just a wee-bit bright. Well done!

Beautiful specimens, I like them very much Chris.
I would have given a bit more space at the bottom. I am afraid aI acan help ypu this time with the ident.
Nice shot, good colours. It'S just a bit overexposed. Didi you used the flash?

Very nice macro work here Chris. The color and sharpness is excellent. There is nothing wrong with the brightness, but I think you would have generated more mood if it had been a bit darker.
Very well done and thanks for posting.

How are You MF? Long time no see Your fungi shots. Of course I like Your other photos, too, but sometimes I'm really hungry for seeing tropical / subtropical fungi species, and Your theme's about the Sydney region is full of them - pity it isn't linked on Your intro page.
Now, about this photo: technically OK, even the flash reflects a bit on some caps, but the colony is captured well overall. Maybe if You photograph a few more centimeters away from the fungi, the crop on the bottom wouldn't be so narrow, but it wasn't a big fault. Fair work, tfs.
ID spec.: it can't be Dermocybe cinnabarina (Fr.) Wünsche (now officially named Cortinarius cinnabarinus Fr.), because that species never grows with stems united at the base, as Your photo shows. You most probably photographed something from Physalacriaceae family, more precisely from Armillaria genus, but not the well-known Aussie species Armillaria luteobubalina Watling & Kile. Very probably we'll never know the exact ID, unfortunately.
I wish You all the best, friendly regards, László
