I find this one even more beautiful than yesterday's picture. The transluscent skin is an absolute marvel. The angle of the slope allows us to discover more fully the mushrooms, and the green tint of the background is beautiful. Congratulations!

@eversmile: Thanks for this extensive comment, Eversmile ! I think it is always a good idea to make different images on the same subject... sometimes they can turn out completely different ... as this series might show ...

Loner from Wörgl, Austria
