Notes: I found quite a lot of these in a small area of meadow near mixed woods. Small, conical red caps, flattening somewhat in maturity; red, becoming dark-centered in maturity, with orange fringe; yellow-orange gills and orange stem.

I photoshopped the thumbnail image. I often make a 160×120 image for an observation’s thumbnail, if none of the other images would look very good/informative if downsampled to that size. Typically it’s a copy of a single other image of the fungus, cropped and down-rezzed, but in this case I combined parts of two images.
Don’t worry — I don’t doctor any images “dishonestly”, and the vast majority are completely unaltered. Only the thumbnails, and some of my earlier photos that needed retouching to bring out detail or color-correct before I got my camera technique down pat…
