Lycogala epidendrum - Wolf's Milk

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lycogala_epidendrum
Lycogala epidendrum, commonly known as wolf's milk, groening's slime is a cosmopolitan species of plasmodial slime mould which is often mistaken for a fungus. The aethalia, or fruiting bodies, occur either scattered or in groups on damp rotten wood, especially on large logs, from June to November.

Beautiful photo and you enlarged it to make the mushrooms so beautiful with such soft colors against the dark background.
Fantastic use of light placed perfectly.

The colour is amazing. I've never seen pink fungi. Maybe I haven't looked enough... :-)

Barbara, I understood from that link that these fungi have two stages. In the first stage they are orange-reddish, in the second stage they turn to yellow. I think that I photographed the first stage. In the coming days I will revisit the place where I found them to see what happens with the colour.
