Hi John. Great macro shots again. Insects can be very appealing in a strange way! The first fungi: Smokey Bracket (Bjerkandera adusta)??? I have a small book, but the pictures are not brilliant. No idea about the second one at all.
Hi John,Again a lot of variety there and some beautiful shots! Well done, I voe the mushrooms shots!
Thanks Angie,we must buy a book.Also thank you Chris for your comments.John.
Stunning detail in some of these images, well done. These must be viewed enlarged to appreciate the detail.
Cracking pictures, John/Sue.I`m not sure of the 2nd fungi pic, but the 2nd looks like Many-zoned Polypore (Coriolus versicolor)
Hi John & Sue Great set of macro shots as usual, some real beauties there. I agree with Dean the first fungi is Many-Zoned Polypore, nearest I can get to the second is "Porsellain Fungus" reason being its the only one I can find with that fan like pattern on the top, and is widespread during September/October in deciduous woodlands.

Wonderful macro series! Is there no end to your talents? Great post.
John correct my spelling on the second one "Porcellain Fungus " Poblem big fingers little keys.
Thank-you for all the comments and thanks to Dean, Angie and Monty for your suggestions for naming the Fungi,will get them done. As this is the season for Fungi we will be paying a visit to Waterstones book shop very soon.
...I love that red toadstool/mushroom...whatever it is (I know nothing about fungi). It is so striking. I would love to stumble across it in the woods. Beautiful detail on your insects too...
More amazing insect shots! You really do get some nicely detailed shots. And I see you guys have wolf spiders in your neck of the woods too. They are rather amazing to observe, aren't they, all big and hairy!
Great selection of our creepy friends!Beautifully photographed.
Great macro shots of the insects. I love seeing the details of their hairs and wings. Its nice to pay attention to the Natural World.
Preciosa serie de macros!
