  1. great macro pictures again? Have you considered posting them on GuruShots for more views? I joined gurushots some months ago and I love to see al those pictures and to join in challenges ( though I am most of the time nr 3000 or so in my rank 😉 )

  2. By crikey! I’d heard of Fairy Inkcap but it was just a name. Just goes to show I know absolutely nothing about the diversity of mushrooms and toadstools, Fly Agaric is the only one I can positively ID. Your moth posts have certainly been an eye-opener, so now are your Mushroom Worlds.

    1. I find fungi quite fascinating and beautiful in their diversity, and I am always on the look out for them, no matter the time of year. Despite the books I have here I do struggle to id some species, and may never do so, but still, it is all quite fun! I am pleased to have opened up your eyes to the world of moths and fungi! Thank you for your lovely comment 🙂

  3. My first thought was that they resemble little caps knitted out of a sparkly yarn — the inclusion of “cap” in their name seems exactly right. These are among the most appealing fungi I’ve seen. It’s a nice pair of photos.

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment, Linda 🙂 These are in their early stages, and the weekend, if I am not too late, I am hoping to catch them fully opened.
