Mycena clarkeanna. East Gippsland.
I live in the Northern Rivers of NSW and this is where much of my photography comes from, apart from the obvious like volcanoes. You can see more of my work at steveaxford.smugmug.com
GORGEOUS Steve…do u use strobes or flashes for any of u’r images?
A reflector (a piece of foil or even white paper will do) to throw some light onto the bottom and a tripod do for most. The very small ones are usually flash because a tripod is very hard with the very strong lens, but natural lighting is usually best.

Wow! Those are beautiful! Thanks to Carla and people like you I am getting a whole new appreciation of fungi.
They are certainly worth a second look. I guess I’v tended to specialise in colour, because we get some very special coloured fungi, but they all have their beauty. They are very important too.
This is sooo cool !Amazing close up !
Thanks photoavenue. They are beautiful.
This is simply wonderful Steve! fabulous lighting, lovely subject and a fabulous image!!
Such pretty little pink umbrellas. These little mushrooms are just toooo cute.
What a beautiful pristine set of Mycena!!!!!So intricate in detail and so delicate in form and colour.Wonderfully lit and exposed and photographed with a very good depth of field and focus.I really like the off centred composition that allows the light to spill in over the moss covered log.Most interesting and enjoyable fungal viewing.
Thanks Dennis. These are a couple of years old, but still good.
They look so beautiful, well taken.
Awesome Capture! BEAUTIFUL!—-Bea :D))
