284/365 Brown Birch Bolete

I spent a couple of hours lying around in a dark damp wood this morning with fellow photo club members, shooting fungi. This little 'gi' is a lechinum scabrum, commonly known as brown birch bolete (I hope I've got that right!). The new tripod was brilliant for getting low down, I took some plastic sheet to lie on, no-one fell in the ponds but one guy got stuck in some boggy mud and had to be rescued! The hardest thing was focussing accurately, not all my shots are sharp in the right place! We were lucky with the weather, a fine drizzle was falling by the time we came away.
