There is a spider in the second photo. It is very small. I wonder if anybody can identify it.

Mushrooms are great because they often take care of the composition for you. In the cropped thumbnail all you can see is mushroom. They really are glorious if you look at them closely in the right light.

Thanks Noah!

The light was perfect today!

Mushroom wilderness photography is always so weather dependent. Most of the leaves have fallen by now, and the sun is at an ideal brightness. In the summer, most mushrooms are found in deep shade, and if you bring them into the light the bright sun whites out the photo. In late fall the sun casts a mellowed brightness that is intense but not overpowering, and there are still plenty of mushrooms around to photograph.

More great shots.
