Looks like a little mouse had a snack wiht this one. Love these toadstools we only have mushrooms in this part all brown and white wiht mush :)

Wonderful color and excellent detail. Regards, Roy.

Nice colours and composition for this fungus. You created a nice atmosphere.
Please allow me to tell you a trick for fungui that works well. Next time try to focus the stem inestead of the cap, so the focus plane will be almost in the middle of the fungus. If you focus the cap like in this shot, you can see that the focus plane is too close too you, so the stem and the contour are OOF compared to the focus point.
Hope that helps, TFS, Felipe.

Hello Skygge, nice to meet you. I first saw and photographed these mushroom this year. They are so attractive - but poisonous too. Good composition here.
These Red Cap mushrooms/toadstools are Amanita muscaria. Now you know I suggest you look up the Net or Google and write a note about them. It is expected to write notes when posting photos on TN.

Quoting Descriptive Notes from TN:
Members are strongly encouraged to post descriptive notes with their photos. Notes help provide other members with information about your shot and help them to tailor their critiques to your specific needs. Shots without notes tend to receive less feedback than shots with descriptive notes.
Notes may be written in any language.

I have run out of points. ! will return later. . .

P.S. Thanks Skygge for adding the notes - good one!
