Maker's Aims and Comments: When the weather conditions are "exactly right" these Lepiota mushrooms emerge in early October on my compost pile. Due to our drought conditions during the summer and fall seasons the past few years have not seen them in quite a while.

Hi Murphy,
Great find. The color and texture of the mushrooms pop out against the warm toned brown leaves. Well exposed. Sharp details on the mushrooms. Nice bokeh in the background. Very pleasing image. Well done.   Posted: 10/04/2021 18:39:34
