These small and delicate fungi were growing from a piece of rotten wood near an old railway line.

Very impressive angle and composition, beautiful background rendering... the leaves near the right edge round it off nicely. Great shot!

Are they a Psylocibe species, I wonder, an intoxicating variety? They do look a lot like them...

Thanks for your comments Feenixx. It is possible they are Psylocibes. I'm not sure I'd want to try them on the off-chance though!

Hi i don't think they are magic mushrooms or Liberty caps if thats what you mean by Psylocibes as they grow in fields and are dark inside.

Probably just common or garden toadstools. Thanks for your input studio4t1
