Never found these below mid elevation in the cascades. Cold temps and extremely late rains could have been the factor.

Torrential rain on the ol backpack still pays off every now and again, I guess… Or you just end up with fogged up lenses and soggy boots! Just glad we came home with some salvageable images that weren’t fogged up. The area where we came across these is an annual salmon run and I felt like the forest was just as wet as the river this day. Well worth it when you get glutinous capped species like these vibrant Mycena to snap pics of for sure. They looked like dripping honey up close.

Beautiful photograph, Drew!
