Fire in the Forest - Hygrocybe cuspidata by 

This picture was taken with a flash, and it shows the amberina-like coloration of these mushrooms. My ID is tentative (Hygrocybe cuspidata). The photo is untouched.

The colors are true to life; these are magnificent little gems that are popping up in large numbers.

Date of photo is August 25, 2011, in a hardwood forest in Montgomery County, PA, just after a rain storm.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.
