Photography is an ongoing adventure for me that (re)started in 2009. I am interested in many kinds of subjects, from landscapes to animals to abstracts. But who knows what I’ll be shooting tomorrow…

    Very fragile! This is a very quick-lifed mushroom in the Coprinus family….often they’re called Lawn Mushrooms as they seem to love grassy areas.
    The dew drops on the grass add to the delicate beauty of this image!

  • Thanks for the nice comment and additional information. I didn’t realize it belongs to the Coprinus family, but now it seems quite obvious… Thanks!

    They may be listed as Psuedo-coprinid or other…this is a family that expands constantly and breaks into new sub categories faster then I can keep track
