I post too Much on Here!!
- Jul 21, 2010
You were the ~last person I was expecting to see on this topic!!!Don't do much mushroom shooting, but was on a family forest walk a few weeks ago and saw a wide variety of fungi. Had only my iPhone with me.

Went back a couple weeks later with my EOS R and EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS.

Are there survivors in the Playhouse?!
And yes- it's Agaricaceae, particularly genus Macrolepiota (judging by the double ring on the first photo). For ID on species level it moves so fast - I can't get the necessary info !
SteveC: your response brings a big (huge?) smile to my face...in these troubled times this sort of thing is necessary for me and my equilibrium...very important. Thanks.See, if you had just got there earlier you could FINALLY have inaugurated the Mushrooms in Flight thread.

Mushrooms in flight: why didn't I think of that!
Now for the (not-so) important stuff:
I see from your list of equipment that you have a mix of 'big' and 'small' Canon gear.
I've grown weary of trying to explain the huge benefits of virtually the entire 'M' ecosystem here on CR: in fact the images for the .gif you are referring to were collected with an M6 when mated to the unbelievably great EF-M 10-22 IS lens.
I'm genuinely interested in the views and opinions of you and those who read this sort of thing who have both really good Canon full-frame equipment as well as the the M-format gear.
I really enjoy using the M6 MkII and look forward to the MkIII...what say you?
Don't be so enthusiastic )): for most of the guys the season is over! Next year it starts again! I can support you with mostly old photos - I don't have the nerve to look down instead up (for the birds). Otherwise it is +/- good season here for fungi (in all the weak but persistent rains!).
After your comment "Me? I wish they were still here!" I lost my enthusiasm about the mushrooms! On other hand the fledglings are leaving on their own way and we are getting older (and older...)! What ever - nice photos! Make more of them for your daughters (and for yourself!)!Great question about survivors and the playhouse...it is about two decades old; our two daughters spent a lot of time there.
They're both now in graduate school and enjoy whatever pix I send in which their playhouse is in the background.
So they indeed survived. Me? I wish they were still here!
Pix to aid in the ID of this solitary mushroom in the backyard:

It's about the ID: the lower POV is showing better the underneath of the mushroom. Really good job if you are curious about the ID!!Beautiful pictures, Maximilian. I especially like the first one for the little higher POV.
