    Great capture and they are an amazing colour with white dots. Beautiful

  • Thank you so much Joy! Yes, they are the most famous mushooms in our area, I’m sure (of course that is because of that children’s song) – but I just didn’t see them that often … this time, and at this place, there were just plenty of them – couldn’t stop shooting LOL

    they look very beautiful together amd the colors are superb my friend !
    I also like the plants on the left side

  • Great! Thanks for your visit and comments, dear. Yes, these mushrooms were just plenty here, I couldn’t stop shooting them LOL – and the heather plants, yeah, I love them too. Just realise that I have missed the blooming of the heather completely this year… where was I in August? o_O … will have to plan it in next year for sure!

    Wow, this is awesome. I wish I could find some fungi like this around where I live. It’s beautiful

    Wonderful capture Steppeland. By the time I find one of these, the squirrels have gotten to them. Well seen and captured. Outstanding detail. :)

  • Thank you, Kathy! Well, I must have been very lucky, that day I made this pic. There were hundreds of mushrooms in the woods there, of all kinds and colours – and I came home with loads of pictures! Seemingly the squirrels and rabbits weren’t too hungry just yet. :)
    Thanks for the kind compliment!
