Swithland Woods, Leicestershire

I went to Swithland Woods today to see if I could find some fungi to photograph. I found a quiet, damp, shady place that had quite a large crop. I do not have a tripod that allows the camera to be fixed at a low level and so all of my shots were handheld. I did not take a plastic sheet or bin liner to lay on. The shots were taken kneeling down - and my jeans got damper and damper. I have not taken these kind of shots before. I think that they are OK for a first attempt.
