I have not been able to identify these mushrooms, found growing along side the Kennebunk Bridle Path in Southern Maine. The mushrooms they most closely resemble are supposed to grow on wood and have little to no stem??? But then I am far from a mushroom expert. I liked the cracked leathery look of the caps and could not resist a ground level shot. They were deep in a clump of tall grass, of course. Here is the shot from above, which has its own charm…especially the shadows of the grass stems across the left cap.

Canon SX20IS. 1) 28mm equivalent and Super-macro. f4 @1/250th @ ISO 125. 2) 450mm equivalent and macro @ f5 @ 1/250th @ ISO 80. Programmed Auto

In Lightroom, some Recovery for highlights. Fill Light and Blackpoint right. Added Clarity and a bit of Vibrance. Sharpen narrow edges preset.
