here's my spring funfus/mushroom taken in the woods not far from my house. The sun was in and out of the trees and while the rest were taking photos of the model the teacher had brought along I was lying in the snow taking this photo. I tried hard to get close enough (didn't have my macro) to get the underneath texture of the mushroom. Am I getting better?

This is WONDERFUL, Val! I love the repetition of form in varying sizes, (fractal-like), the color and detail. Nice job!!!

I also like the way the green moss balances the ornage mishroom! Good color, compositon and clarity. Mary :-)

WOW I would never have thought that those mushrooms would have appeared in the winter. At least not looking as new as these do. We do have some tough old ones growing on trees but generally we only get fresh mushrooms in the autumn. These are fantastic Val. It is great you got right underneath them. I suppose it is the reflection of the light from the snow that is helping to give them a perfect exposure. A great composition Val!
Yes you are getting better!

They look too delicate to be out in old weather!

This is very nice!

Kate these are more fungus than mushrooms, certainly not edible evidently or a creature would have eaten them. But I truly thank you both for your warm comments. I am trying hard.
