Love it! This is just gorgeous.
What a perfect shot of this fungus (looks like an amanita, perhaps?) Mushrooms and other fungi fascinate me, though I've never learned to identify too many of them. I just treat them all with respect as far as handling them, but love to photograpy them. The brown and drying leaves around this one make the shot especially wonderful.
I adore pictures shot at such an angle! The details of the toadstool was impressive.Let me guess at a Canon G11?
Beautiful - very Alice in wonderlandBy the way - this was for youhttp://theturningyear.wordpress.com/2010/10/21/especially-for-esther/Kx
You must have had to get very very low to get that angle - well done, its fab
Love mushrooms but too wary to pick them from the wild. Wonderful photograph.
I just love the angle you chose... The colors are so bright. This is a great shot indeed.
wow!!! nice photo!! there is a world down there!
Lovely shot - I hope the ground wasn't too damp.So many kinds of fungi and I am woefully ignorant about them.
Very good perspective!
Fantastic choice for a perspective!
My minds eye can see little people living under this thing...
Thanks, Luis.Jodi - I agree Amanita but am flummoxed which. Another, nearby, was clearly Fly Agaric but the colouration was (to me) unusual. This . . . well, I have more photos for Loose and Leafy. My newly acquired book on fungi turns out not to be as comprehensive as I imagined. I hadn't taken variations within varieties into account when I thought my identification problems had been solved.Hello Rune. One of the advantages of holding a camera is that one can crawl around on the ground to get the right view without people being too surprised by how one is behaving!Hello Karen - I hadn't thought 'Alice in Wonderland' - but, now, I do. (Though I try not to think of that too much because I find the original illustrations scary.) Your Turning Year Photo is quite stunning. I know you are busy - but I do enjoy your Turning Year blog very much when you do post on it.Patient Gardener - yes, I was on my knees and elbows and the sides of my hands. And the ground, though cut grass, was wet and, in places, muddy with worm casts. I love photography!Thanks Amanda.Hermes - this one is not for eating. (At least, I wouldn't eat it!)! When I show it from the top on Loose and Leafy, with its colours and it circles of little spikes and all its fascinating gruesomeness, I don't think you will specially want it for breakfast.Thanks Tsuki.Sophie - yes, another world - and often we must tread on it before we notice!Hello Easy Gardener - autumn fungi like the damp. I took photos in this spot three days running. On the first two, it had been raining. On the third - it was. I'm thinking I might need a water-proof jacket for my camera!Thanks Nat.Hello Pat. If I had found little people under the toadstool I would have been so frightened I would probably have had to start a horror blog of my own!LucyP.S. For those who don't know my nature blog 'Loose and Leafy' - this is the linkhttp://looseandleafy.blogspot.com/
Hello T. Becque. Glad you like the toadstool. I'm enjoying the photos on your blog.Lucy
Oh, Rune, sorry - I meant to say - Canon S90, not G11. How did you guess so close though?Lucy
Wow, we have had some beautiful mushrooms this year too, but none like this. Or perhaps it's because I'm not lying down in the grass looking up at them. Thanks for posting this. it's simply magical.
Muy bueno excelente!saludos!
