I found this light yellow mushroom on my lawn the other day. Not a full six hours later, I found it dead… It couldn’t stand the extremely high temperatures we have this summer.
Very fragile mushroom growing out of deep, moist leaf litter. Cap about 1-1.5 cm diameter, with dust-like yellow fine scales. Gills white, stem greenish yellow.

SPECIAL AWARDS: 1
Second runner up – Photo of the week…. – Editors Weekly Choice Ending January 18th. 2014

Living on a farm, as I do, I’m provided unique opportunities to photograph plants and creatures. There are not many trees here, and no mountains or rocks; but there are a lot of fields! The bright sun gives me many lovely silhouettes to capture; while the rain brings out tiny plants and creatures. Sometimes I visit another town or province; and then my Canon EOS 550D works overtime.

    Such a gentle little mushroom that it does look fragile. Lovely contrast against the green.
