Cool mate, got a few more shots today on my last QLD walk for this trip, if there're any different ones, will resize and put them up soon, think there was one or two different ones.

Some great fungus and photos above
fungi is rather boring around here but at least I don't get wet when getting photos . 1st one is from the Border rangers [nth nsw]. The last one would be 150-200mm across. Just bought a olympus 60mm macro lens to get a bit more detail of this fascinating stuff although I need to work out cost effect lighting/flash to go with it.

They are rare to the Toolangi Forest area. They call them the "Blue Aasics Toadies", being the male species of course because of their vibrant colors.:).
They are also good at indicating actual size of the female toadstool species.:D.
I would think that they would be very rare indeed as anyone seeing them would feel inclined to stomp on them and rub them into the dirt without giving any consideration to any poor critter that might choose to take shelter in them.

And interestingly very similar to Ian's first pic too, just a little different in colour.
Interesting because Ian's were taken in his area (SA riverland ?) and mine is a tropical SE QLD location.

Cheers. some useless camera info: I think all those photos were taken with the Panasonic FZ200 which would have to be the most versatile camera I have used and a great travel camera. There is a new FZ300 version available now. Close up and wide macro to birds/wildlife are covered with the one camera with one very fast and consistent F2.8 lens. Notice I said versatile and not best as the best is the Olympus EM cameras. Better than any film or dslr I have owned. But I'm still scratching my head to why the hell I bought the olympus macro lens. Bit of an :oops: moment I think

I have a couple online photography mates who wander around that sort of Mt Donna Buang Vic country looking for fungus to photograph. This is one who does a good job of it.
Now that set the bar a too high :( :D
