Day #2119Title: Clustered Bonnet
Location: Swan Wood, Stock
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 from RHS, through Stofen diffuser @ 1/16; 1 x YN560 from LHS, through Stofen diffuser @ 1/16
Notes: After a grizzly start to the day, the rain finally stopped mid-afternoon and I took a quick trip over to Swan Wood to look for more interesting fungi. This group of Clustered Bonnet (Mycena inclinata), was growing on a stump close to the path.

Day #2116Title: Rosy Bonnet
Location: Galleywood Common
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 from RHS, through Stofen diffuser @ 1/32; 1 x YN560 from LHS, through Stofen diffuser @ 1/32
Notes: Thankfully, the plumber turned up promptly this morning and managed to sort out the boiler problem, so that’s one less thing to worry about. It wasn’t exactly cheap, but it could have been much worse. Water continued to flow from the sky for most of the day (but not the boiler). By late this afternoon, I noticed a break in the clouds, so I packed up my fungi-hunting kit and headed to Galleywood Common to find a few mores specimens. This lovely duo of Mycena rosea were lurking in the wet undergrowth, with the flash bringing out the sparkle.

Day #2108Title: Growing On A Log
Location: Hanningfield Nature Reserve
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 from right, through Stofen diffusers @ 1/16; 1 x YN560 from above, through Softbox @ 1/16
Notes: I enjoyed an afternoon in Hanningfield Nature Reserve looking for fungi to photograph. These were a colourful specimen growing on a log. Apparently they are Honey Fungus (Armillaria mellea). I lit them with flash as they were in a dark corner.

Day #1835 Title: Turkey Tails
Location: Galleywood Common
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: I managed a quick walk on Galleywood Common at lunch time, and was quite surprised when the sun shone for me. These Turkey Tails were growing on the side of a tree stump by the old Napoleonic defenses – a part of the Common which I’d not previously explored.
