Has a lot less impact than the previous post – but it’s also a lot less contrived (apart from the title of course). Four little mushrooms sheltering in a hole (cavern?) in an oak tree root. I was so taken by the ‘rooms that I completely forgot to take a picture of the whole tree.
From a picture point of view, I can remember using my small pop-up reflector to help push some light onto the mushrooms and their stalks.
(Fairies round here too, perhaps?)
I find it amazingly beautiful
Thanks – a chance find not to be missed

Thats a good one, with the fairy mushrooms hiding in this cave. Mushrooms are so fascinating. So is this tree trunk. An oak (seems from the leave)?
Oak is correct. It’s actually a root of an oak, a few overland roots radiate from the tree as it’s on quite a rocky location.
Stunning – love this! =D
Thank you. It’s often surprising what a quiet little walk in the countryside on your own will throw up as a subject.
I love this photo. It’s as if the little mushrooms were waiting for you to come along with a camera so you could introduce them to the world.
I don’t go looking for fungi for most of the year but Autumn is on it’s way and I shall be out at my favourite (lucky) spot.
A very nice capture. I suppose these mushrooms aren’t the edible kind.
Unfortunately not – though I’m not inclined to take them as I’m not sufficiently confident in identifying them
How nice nature world, and how amazing your eye of camera. Thank you, love, nia
My motto is ‘Keep looking!” and something usually comes along to photograph.
I think that this image is very cute!! Great find! 😀
Thank you! We find ‘stuff’ in all sorts of places, sometimes it’s simply having the presence of mind to a take a photo!
Cool. I came across grotesquely giant shroom growing on the side of a tree at the weekend but, alas, I did not have my camera!
What! No camera! I know what you mean, but when you’ve been somewhere with your camera and you realise you’ve left the memory card at home….. now that bites!
what a find!
Yes, indeed. We have to have a little luck sometimes.
