I think that bright colors say "don't eat me, I could make you sick".

I like the 2nd one the most. It kind of looks like an optical illusion.

Well done with the framing of these scenes - the balanced lighting between ambient and flash is also good. Thanks for sharing.

Nicely done shots, and that Optio would seem to be a good take-along camera for paddling. The first one looks like an Apricot Jelly fungi. You captured its moistness and color wonderfully well. All of the shots are really good. I like the perspectives you chose for them. Well done.

Thank you so much for all the great comments. I have had a lot of fun with the Optio and I do take it paddling. I love finding different ways of seeing but was wondering if these were too strange to be enjoyed, so all of your comments have been a joy to read.

Thanks again!

Could not really call them Magic Mushroom Pictures. But you have worked your magic!

Love the last shot. Did you use fill-flash on the second shot?
