Saffron-coloured puffs

I’d call this the shot of the day. Usually I have to block the sun, it reflecting too strongly on the usually pale body of a fungus. But here . . . wow!

Though whatever the form of puff-ball/earth-ball, I do admit it was already that wonderful earthy ochre colour.

    Back lit plants can definitely be interesting and have a magical feel to them. Very interesting shot. Can you eat those?? I think one thing to watch for with back lit plants of fungi is look out of ones with dark backgrounds but wit the light hitting them. I think you will like that a lot. I do love these puff balls!!
