I never realized that there are so many mushrooms that pop up in the fall. They're everywhere and these I discovered on the side of a tree as I was walking the dogs this morning. Once all business was successfully conducted I went back to take this photograph. To get the effect I wanted I did some not-focus stacking. Two pictures were taken at different apertures, one at a small aperture to get a greater depth-of-field on the mushrooms and another at a large aperture to get the nice background that I wanted. I wonder if these could be used to make vegetarian gravy for my mashed potatoes.
