Trip Report - Fungi in Warwickshire Part 2

As promised earlier in the week, here is part 2 of my fungi foray in Warwickshire.

All the images were taken with the same gear as the images posted here with the exception of the Sulphur Tufts.

For that image I used the Canon 50mm f1.4 lens - a cracking little lens and a good improvement over the plastic 1.8 version I also have. Although that lens is a must have in any Canon owners bag to be honest.

As I mentioned in the last post, I was a little late in getting out this year so some had gone over, but I enjoyed seeing the Sulphur Tufts this way, and I certainly like the shape of the unknown fungus. I need to do a little more id work on that one from my book - see link below if you want to get hold of a copy, it is a great book

Yellow Stagshorn

Unknown (at this time)

Sulphur Tufts
(a more unusual shot for me showing more of the environment)

Common Funnel

One of the problems I had on this trip was the extremely short life of the rechargeable batteries that I had been using. I bought these rechargeable Ni-mh AA 2800's some while ago, made sure they were fully charged before I went, but sadly they didn't last too long. So looks like I need to rethink my battery strategy. I have heard that the Lithium Energiser cells are meant to be pretty good, so will give them a test drive.

On the 7D test front, I will finish the processing of the images tonight, so come back in a couple of days to check out my findings.

    Your unknown may be a mature specimen of 'Deceivers'.
