These are fungi with a less conventional shape than the typical Toadstool.

#1
PezizaSp800.jpg

This is one of the Cup fungi, genus Peziza.

#2
Rhodotus_palmatus800.jpg

This is The Peach, Rhodotus palmatus. It is growing on a tree stump.

#3
Phleogena_faginea800.jpg

This is the Curry Fungus Phleogena faginea. It grows on the bark of Oak and Beech and has an unmistakable smell of Fenugreek. The clump in this image is only about two centimetres across.

#4
Lycogala_terrestre800.jpg

This is the fruiting body of a slime mould Lycogala terrestre, growing on a tree stump. The 'blob' is about two centimetres across.

C & C welcome.

Nice fungi.

May I suggest a slightly different angle to make them a tad more interesting? For example, with #4, if the horizon were parallel with the wood the fungus is attached to, it may make it a tad more interesting than a shot from above.

Good point. However, as I recall, the blob was on this sloping stump near ground level. It would, perhaps, have been better to take it in profile.
