Thanks for your comments papa natas. Not sure how you assume I took it just for FUN. I saw the scene and I waited for the light to be just right , and that was the only camera I had on me at the time, otherwise I may have taken a better photo. In any case , maybe it's the photographer - not the camera!

In reply to:

RuthC: These little blue pixie parasols (Mycena interrupta) are quite delightful, bcys1961, and they deserve to be in one of the top places in this challenge. The subject meets the theme of 'Leaf Litter' beautifully, and you have captured their beauty and detail really well. Colours and contrasts are just right, and make a great picture. Ruth :-)

Thanks Ruth

On stripes in the Simplicity challenge (2 comments in total)

Thank you . Was taken in my local botanical gardens. I noticed the sun backlighting these plants. Behind them was a dark wall , so exposed on the plant and the background is underexposed.

olsenn: Aren't the blue turning species of mushroom the psychedelic kind?

Don't know about that. I did not try them!

Hi Ruth ,
Thankyou for your comments . I would like to say it was deep in the middle of the Australian rain forest , but actually I was in the middle of Sydney. Bicentennial Park at Homebush. There was a whole area of them growing up out of some recently spread woodchip mulch under cover of eucalyptus trees.

On Sculpture by the sea in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (3 comments in total)

Hi , thanks for comments .
It is a steel sculpture comprised of a series of concentric rings. When viewed from this angle they form this pattern , but if you view it from the side the rings are all placed one behind the other and it looks a bit like one of those Slinky toys . It has a depth of about half a metre or so .

On One Orange Leaf in the One Orange Leaf challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks for your lovely critique Ruth and glad you like the photo . I'm quite enjoying the "Leaf Series" and find I am constantly on the lookout for the next colour.
I don't really see the point in sandbagging . It's not like there are huge cash prizes on offer . I take the photo's because I enjoy it and if others like them as well then that's good.
