WITH THIS IMAGE I CELEBRATE MY 2ND ANNIVERSARY HERE ON AMINUS3. ON THIS OCCASION I'D LIKE TO THANK ALL THE VISITORS FOR THE KIND AND ENCOURAGING COMMENTS THEY WROTE ON MY DAILY POSTS. THEY REALLY ARE A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION AND ENCOURAGE ME TO MAKE THE BEST OUT OF EVERY IMAGE.
AFTER 730 DAILY IMAGES (298 PLANTS, 166 FUNGI, 152 ANIMALS(INSECTS MOSTLY) AND SOME OCCASIONAL LANDSCAPES OR B&W-EXPERIMENTS) THERE IS STILL A LOT TO DISCOVER AND EXPLORE IN NATURE AROUND ME SO I PLAN TO CARRY ON FOR AT LEAST 1 YEAR... HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON!


Mycena crocata (NL: Prachtmycena / EN: Saffrondrop Bonnet, Orange Bleeding mycena / DE: Gelbmilchender Helmling / FR: Mycène safranée, Mycène à lait orangé, Mycène jaune d’or) is a species of mushroom in the Mycenaceae family. It can be found among fallen leaves and on fallen, decaying branches in Fagus sylvatica (Beech) woods during late summer to late autumn. The cap meausures 10 - 30 mm across, the stem is usually between 40-80 x 2-3 mm, pale yellow to orange yellow above, darker orange below, bright orange to reddish at the base. The species is very characteristic with the yellow-red to orange-red stains and the reddish juice in the stipe (The common name "Saffrondrop Bonnet" refers to the red or orange latex that it exudes if the stipe is broken), in addition to the habitat.

These are rather interesting mushrooms. They look very frail.

Je foto's zijn stuk voor stuk kunstwerkjes die de pracht van de natuur in zijn kleinste facetten illustreren. Leuk dat je net twee jaar bezig bent, deze foto doet me denken aan een verjaardagstaart met alvast vier kaarsjes erop ... ik hoop dat we nog eindeloos veel natuuropnames van jou zullen mogen bewonderen.
Liefs van christine
