Golden mushroom with brown leaf

And now for something completely different! On my daily walks last week, I noticed a proliferation of mushrooms growing in the grass and the bare spots among the landscape plants. So I went to two of my favorite mushroom finding forest spots with my camera, my extension tubes and an LED flashlight. Success! I'll try to mix mushrooms with other shots to avoid boredom, but be ready for some colorful and shapely fungi.

This shot is an impressive capture. The shot is excellent in composition with superb detail. The mushrooms make a very good alternative when you want to post a different type of subject.
