Very tiny "mushroom drops", the largest one less than 1 cm
Netherlands, Bussum, Spanderswoud, Oct. 2012

I think this is the Dacryomyces stillatus - Jelly Spot Fungus - Zerflie├čende Gallerttr├Ąne - Oranje Druppelzwam
From http://eol.org/pages/1030016/details : This saprotrophic, or decomposer, jelly fungus is notable for its small orange gelatinous appearance. Its common name is the Jelly Spot Fungus. Growing to sizes between 2-8mm, Dacrymyces stillatus is gregarious and appears in large groups and clusters on coniferous and deciduous woods. The fruiting bodies are broad, round, convex and at length plicate, meaning that it can grow to become shell or fan shaped.

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.
