Yup very nice. Can you give us the environmental conditions you found these in. Temps, local flora, that kind of thing?

The maggot pics were very difficult to take because as soon as I would get the maggot's head into the beam of light, it would try to move away. I had a helper who adjusted the fine focus as I moved the stage and operated the camera.

These were in windy hill open space preserve in los altos, california. It rained a lot ten days ago but has been dry since. Its late in the season here, so that affects what is fruiting as well. I didn't see any mycorrhizal species at all, just a bunch of saphotrophs. All the mushrooms pictured were growing within a foot of fallen trees.

That was good times.

Hopefully we can find a large fruiting of Omphalotus some day and stare at them in the dark.... Okay, well that sounds lame, but you know it was awesome!!!
