Land of Lilliput II

Mycena pseudocorticola

I always go and have a look at the old willow growing on the river bank. Its moss laden boughs host a lot of interest this time of year. I was astounded to find just how many of these tiny mushrooms were growing out of the moss, creating a most beautiful and magical display .

  1. These are gorgeous, Pete.
    For some reason, we have got several small patches on the lawn where little brown mushrooms are sprouting.
    A first at our spot and although unusual, a treat nonetheless.

  2. Pete, nice photos. I always find photographing mushrooms difficult with the low angle and low light. You have done a great job. Thanks for the post.

  3. You did a great job of capturing the magic of the plants living on this tree. I feel the magic with your words and images.
