Light in the forest

Light in the forest
One of my favourite things to photograph - these tiny fungi with the beautiful gills. They let the sun through and light up like tiny beacons. Fortunately, this one was growing near the trail, on a dead leaf, where the sunlight could reach it. Taken at Brown-Lowery Provincial Park on 9 September 2011. One of only maybe four or five fungi that I found to photograph on that quick visit.

Haha ... it is so nice to see a "mushroom" here Anne ... there maybe others here, but not with my contacts ... you could start a "mushroom group" here and be the resident expert ... LOL ... a very illuminating shot ... an exceptional piece of work!!

This is a fabulous shot of the mushroom! I can see why it is one of your favourite things to photograph! I love the lighting on this - it practically glows, yet the background is so black! Amazing!
