With all the rain we've been getting over the last 2 weeks lots of these tiny mushrooms are springing up in our back garden.

A very lovely composition, Ian! Superb lighting and tones.

It's been very dry here, and there hasn't been the colorful variety of wood fungi that we usually have.

I love the cream tones and the shape and texture of the mushrooms, and the red spot: mystery guest? unusual for you and still extraordinary :)
