Mycena sp.

Mycena (NL: Mycena / EN: Bonnets /DE: Helmlinge /FR: Mycènes ) is a large genus of small saprotrophic mushrooms that are rarely more than a few centimeters in width. They are characterized by a white spore print, a small conical or bell-shaped cap, and a thin fragile stem. The name Mycena comes from the Ancient Greek μύκης, meaning "mushroom". The genus is now known to include about 500 species worldwide and microscopic features are usually crucial for identification. For this specimen I was not able to get an exact identification to species level. It was growing on a old decaying trunk covered with mosses.

@Aubélia: Het lijkt eerder lente dan herfst eigenlijk in deze foto... De herfstkleuren kwamen hier dit jaar pas laat op gang vond ik. Nu ja - met mooi licht kan je in elk seizoen wel leuke foto's maken. Bedankt voor je reactie !

Heel mooi met de mossen erbij, de twee sporenkapsels rond de steel staan op de perfecte plaats. Prettig weekend, het mooie weer nodigt uit om er op uit te trekken.

@christine: Het is soms een kwestie van een mm meer naar links of rechts om de compositie van je foto goed te krijgen. Ik hou er wel van om te zoeken naar het beste beeld in dit soort situaties. Niet altijd makkelijk, maar dat maakt het net te uitdagender om er iets van te maken. Bedankt voor je reactie ! Groetjes !
