Looks like a lactarius of some sort. Some are edible, some are not.

Great shot. I get gigantic colonies of something similar in this one corner of my yard each year. I mean, colonies of maybe fifty individual mushrooms, but clumped together such that they form this single fungal mass that is often FEET in diameter.

Love that carpet of moss, too!

The fly agarics were shot with the 7D + 100 L. Unfortunately it is/was front focussing and at the time I made these pics, I was not aware of AFMA.
The one which is looking like a coral was shot with the shorty forty and 5D3.

Not to everyone's taste with so narrow DoF, but it was also a bit of an experiment with the 135 f/2 wide open with extension tubes, close to 1:1.

Name: Wood Sorrel
Edible: I think so
Location: Aigas Field Centre, Scotland
Equipment: Canon 5D MkII + EF 135mm f/2 with 68mm extension tubes

And some more conventional.

Name: Tylopilus felleus
Edible: Yes (if my ID is correct :P)
Location: Quantock Hills, Somerset, England
Equipment: Canon 5D MkII + EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro

Name: Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria)
Edible: No
Location: Quantock Hills, Somerset, England
Equipment: Canon 5D MkII + EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro


Young Fly Agaric by Kernuak (avalonlightphotoart.co.uk), on Flickr

I'll have to dig out a couple I've done using the 100mm macro (non-L) with extension tubes, near to twice life size.


This last one is so "Super Mario"

Very nice, I especially like the the last one.

They may be porcelain fungus. They look like some sort of Mycenoid anyway.

No idea what it is but it was found in a pine forest above 6000 feet.




Looks like it might be a flower of some kind. Amazing the things you find on the forest floor. ;)


One names is Snow Plant. Its a fungus.  Very common in the Sierras in June.


The name Snow Plant seems right, but it is NOT a fungus.  Snow plants feed on the fungal networks in the ground though. Fungi never make flowers.

Thank you Kernuak and Sporgon!  They were quite delicate and tiny... A joy to find and shoot but I'll have to leave it to your good guesses, I have none and no knowledge regarding them, except that I really like the edible ones!!  ;D
