You're right, Lisa, the colours positively glow and they look all velvet ;-)) I've photographed similar ones here, only they were in the colour range brown - beige, so they weren't as spectacular as these.
Beautiful capture, only I'd have left in a bit more on the right to make even spacing on all four sides.

Magis colors for this great composition.
I love it!

Oh! What will Nina (aka Nina) be happy to see this one...

Just wonderful. Colours looks bright and natural, and tight framing is very well achieved. Very good work Lisa!

Wow, such beautiful colours, exceptional composition. The dark surrounding contrast well with the fungi. Did you use a flash?

Well done Lisa.

Absolutely stunning - Wonderful DOF and composition. If you do find out the name, please let us know.

This is a very nice photo. I tried similar but the colours of our fungi are white and beige they do not stand out as wonderful as yours. The detail of the growth rings are very sharp. Thanx for sharing.

It is wonderfull ! Good composition and colors ! Well done !

Lighjt seemed to have been from the back, the slow SS at the wide apperture - did you use flash and a tripod? This is excellently backlit with some nice rim lighting, but these fungi are normally not translucent. However you did it, it is a magic combo of light & frills on the dark BG.

Wonderful Colours good composition.very sharp. Thanx for sharing.

Brilliant display, warm, rich, colors. Very nicely composed. A lovely specimen. Excellent photo!

Hello Lisa!

It's a very nice picture. Sharpness is good and exposure excellent. As some other pictures in your collection, I like your graphical perspective. Your picture are not only illustration of a nature subject, it's also a graphic composition. I see it more as an artwork than as a photograph.
Great work and TFS

Nice picture: good colours, good sharpness, good frame!! And for me something new and interesting!!!!!
