Default Mini Mushroom Macro

These little ephemeral mushrooms (≤ 1/2 in) come up during the night in the planter mix with some of my wife's seedlings and are gone soon after. This one is already wilting. K20D with Tamron 90mm and flash.

A nice picture, I like the contrast/colors involved. Macro lenses are usually good at really small apertures - I routinely shoot at f16 - f20 with the Viv, helpful when you are so close to something that small. Mushrooms can be such fun to photograph, I'll have to keep my eye out for some like these.

Interesting phenomena (and a nice picture). Did she mix the soil herself or did it come in a package with the seeds?
Some years ago I took this in a pot with a Clivia. The mushrooms come back every year, but I've never seen them "in wild".

It was one of those commercial potting mixes, separate from the seeds, and supposed to have been composted. They always seem to contain a surprise of some sort, usually smaller than yours (nice picture, too). Last year it was a bird's nest fungus:

Different kind of mushroom. Never seen one like that before. And, nicely captured.
