Velvet Shank

Flammulina velutipes

Velvet Shank

The lovely orange-brown caps of Velvet Shank seemed to be glowing from out of the damp, moss covered rotting wood. The bright orange caps are generally darker towards the centre and appear slimy in wet conditions (they dry to a smooth sheen). I placed a golden reflector to the right in order to diffuse some of the harsh shadows while also complementing the reflective warm glow of the mushrooms.
