Another image of the honey mushroom.
This one shows nicely how they grow on a dead tree.

Hi Shir.
What a beautifully exposed image. And you are right, it certainly does "show nicely" the subject :)
The plane of optimum focus seems to be a few inches behind the clump of mushrooms?
But a stunning image all the same :)

Excellent composition!
Very nice colour, and great lighting.

A fantastic shot Shir.
One of the fungi shots I've seen on TN. Superb exposure. No nits, a perfect shot.

Hello Shir,
You did a great portrait of honey mushroom, nice colours & clear details, dof & pov are excellent,
Very well composed,

Greetings from Canada,

Another excellent image, everything is just right. Interestingly, it shows that what is called Armillaria mellea is quite different from what is called Armillaria mellea in North America. This genus is a very confusing one.
