Default FZ35 - Mushrooms, part 1

I discovered some unique looking mushrooms about a week ago. I shot some images after discovered. Six days later, I returned to find them changed significantly.

I thought they made for some interesting subject matter. I am not usually taken by brown, but it works here. The mature ones look like a chocolate drizzled cookie.

Shot in P mode, AF mode, spot focus (Area-1 was not working -- fuzzy shots).

#1 is my favorite; the light on the lower part of the stem, along with the color around it, is beautiful!

#5 also really takes my eye! The browns work really nice, with just a dash of color is outstanding!

Wow! What a beautiful series you have presented here!

Good series Roger. What diameter (if you can remember) is #4?

I think I saw a similar one a while ago, when it collapsed, it stank of fish......

Square One, the diameter was 3 1/2" to 4". That is one problem with these kinds of shots -- not much in the image to get size context.

Yes, I do like #1 as well. The small spot of light at the base seems to bring it to life. I wish I could say that was by intention, but not so!

Thanks for the comments to all.

I did check on the mushrooms a day later, and they had all been destroyed. Most likely a deer hit them with their feet. They were growing right off a pathway the deer regularly take (about 50 feet outside my back door).

I must try to get more deer pics soon. The same one that I posted pics this Summer makes a daily visit for feeding. She eats out of a small bucket in my hand, as well as directly out of my hand. I've been able to scratch her head, ears and neck recently. How to hold the bucket, scratch her head, and hold the camera at the same time?
