Two tiny mushrooms (about 3mm cap diameters) on a rotting log covered with mosses spotted this morning.  I welcome your C & C for improvements.

Wonderful image Anthony, with the only blot being it looks like it would be a joy to view large. (I feel deprived...LOL)
Make your life spectacular!

This is stunningly beautiful!  Just like a peep into a tiny, magical world where we might catch a glimpse of a fairy wandering through the moss forest.......  :wink:  

Superb image, Ant!

Interesting view into a mini forest. I didn't imagine that the mushrooms are so tiny. Well done.

It is a lovely image and the tiny blooms on the moss stems show just how tiny the fungi are. You got the fill flash just right. The one thing a little off is the mirroring on the far right, I would simply crop that off. I assume it is an artifact from the stacking process.

An exquisite macro scene - fine combination of moss flowers and fungi.

What a wonderful fairyland! The light on the little mushrooms is magical. I have seen similar scenes in my woods and have never been able to capture what you have done here. Just delightful.

I noticed that too.  Yes, it was an airtight from the stacking process.  I wanted to cloned away but couldn't do it neatly.  I'll take your suggestion to crop off.
