Very interesting lookig but

Very interesting lookig but unfortunately not in focus so can't really say very much about them, any chance of re-taking the photo making sure the camera is set to macro (if you want to do a close-up). it can be ratehr tricky to pursuade some of the digi compacts to focus where you want rather than where they want so always check the image on the screen and may need several goes before you get a good one. in this case you might also like to include a ruler to get the size.

Well I'll take the money John

Well I'll take the money John as I think I can make out gills on this fungus and Auricularia auricula-judae does not have gills! Any chance of another photo Nic to help decide this?
