Cracked and crooked, but the intense color makes it perfect anyway! (I think this is Laccaria amethystina (Amethyst Deceiver), and am glad to say that was confirmed by Mark).

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…

    That is wild. I never seen one in this color before. Very cool shot~ Peechez

  • Thanks Peechez! It was the first time I noticed them, but there were quite a lot of them hidden between the leaves.
