Default Strange mushrooms

During my travels today, I found some unique mushrooms. In our area, we have had damp (wet?) weather the past couple of weeks. Mushrooms are found everywhere these days, every shape, color, size, etc. But, this grouping was unique, not found anywhere else. The sun was out, but filtered through some trees. The light on the brown/orange shapes, along with the "sesame seed" topping made for an interesting subject.

All were shot in P mode, AF focusing, EV bracketing (most are probably -1), Auto ISO, Auto WB. In highsight, I wish I would have shot some of them with some level of zoom, intending to blur out some of the background.

Thanks for the comments, folks. I agree, lighting made everything in these shots. Had I been by an hour later, heavy shade would be covered the area.

Actually, the contrast is much more pronounced in the photos than reality. I was a bit surprised when I reviewed them on the camera right after shooting.
