Mushroom Monday:
Scarlet Waxy Cap

[Mushroom Monday - better late than never] These little beauties are Scarlet Waxy Cap mushrooms. They are quite frequent in my forest and are positively fairytale-esque. They have a very shiny (waxy) look to them and begin as tiny red specks on the forest floor. I love seeing such vibrant colors in nature and these are gems in the sunlight.

This is a waxy cap nearing the end of its life. They really glow in the sunlight.
