Photographing mushrooms growing high in a tree is so much easier when the tree is blown over. To give a scale, the stump is about six and a half feet tall.

Nice set. Indeed it make it much easier to capture those 'shrooms' when they are closer to you. Love the detail in the images, and the different stages of growth. I especially like the fourth in the series. Wonderful light, and exceptional tones. Great job!

Thanks. The last one last one was my favorite of what I took. I thought it looked like one of those elaborate fish you see in tropical reefs. I had 2 days total to get some of the texture of these, then the rain made everything kind of bleh.

Those count. I'm jealous of the "stacking". I've got one I've been trying to work with that isn't so cooperative. No snow to contend with, though.
