Thanks.I have been looking for Pholiota species which might match your photo but no luck so far. P squarrosa is found on Ash.

I'll watch them over the next few days as the pictures of Pholiota squarrosa I've found appear more mature than those I've photographed so maybe they're just young ones which are due to grow a bit bigger?

The largest of the ones shown was about 25-30mm tall.

Always a good idea to document a colony from emergence to death.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Never tried Focus Stacking before so this was my first go today trying stacking on some fungi. Not perfect but I was pleased with the results as a first go. Jpegs straight out of camera. Will try again next weekend, maybe go the whole hog and try focus bracketing. Results looked a lot better in the field than they do back home on the monitor. Really hard to check the focus on such a small screen.

Focus stacking is fixed at 8 shots so I varied aperture from f3.5 to f5.6 depending on the size of the fungi and used a narrow focus differential 3-4 increasing it a bit at higher f stops.
