This was taken September 19.
It was a sunny day after several rainy ones, and Doggy and I were enjoying the light.
These red mushrooms caught my eye, even though they were exceptionally small.
The birch limb behind them was less than two inches in diameter!
After I put the pics from that day on my computer, I found a spider.
It's in the middle, just under the curl of birch bark, can you see it?
Then just this morning, I noticed another critter, an insect!
If you follow a diagonal line up from the center of the small red mushroom,
through the large one and the spider,
you will find it.
I think it may be the spider's dinner!
So I think this picture will do for
Straight Out of the Camera Sunday
Drop on by these great memes!
Update: Gemma at Greyscale Territory has a meme I just discovered, and I'm contributing this pic for it also. It's called Weekend Nature; check it out, and maybe contribute something of your own!
This little scene looks good enough to eat...rather like salad greens that have just been washed...however, I wouldn't include the spider in my lunch :)
What a delightful picture. I clicked on it to make it larger as at first I couldn't see the spider's prey. That did make it easier and I did see it in the end.
I bet those mushrooms/toadstools are very poisonous.
Nuts in May
Stunning! You have a great idea for details.
Magical picture, - it set me looking for gnomes or fairies....
Those little mushrooms are such a brilliant red! I wouldn't have seen the critters if you hadn't mentioned them. I love surprises like these!
Interesting find in that red mushroom . . . never seen one like it before. I see the critters but only after you pointed them out because my eyes were drawn to the red alone at first.
Such a lovely photo! :) I can only find one spider, up to the right of lthe arge red mushroom.. :)
the large red mushroom... that should be! ;)
The red of the mushroom really jumps out at you, doesn't it? Great shot.
That is a really delightful picture. I can't see the spider's presumed dinner however.
Amazing photo. I've never seen red mushrooms before, didn't even know they existed outside storybooks. Thanks for sharing with us.
That mushroom is certainly unique and I can see the spider when enlarged. I really like the composition of the photo. Very artistic and interesting.
Very interesting photo! I love all the colors and details!
Great photograph! That is one big spider!
What a splendid composition! red mushrooms, a birch limb, a spider, an insect. The best painter couldn't have done better.
Sept. 19 was STORMY and RAINY in Eastern WA.!
Beautiful detail of the mushrooms and other low plants too! But the capture of the spider on the prowl too is simply magical! Nature in action!
I don't think I have ever seen such a red mushroom! This is such a neat photo!
Back again! Thanks so much for linking this to my meme!
Great I really like the colorful mushrooms.
Wow! I've never before seen red mushrooms. Nice photos!
The central focus of this picture is the mushroom and the birch bark is a good contrast for the red color. Everything is perfectly arranged. Liveliness all around. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Dimple. I really like the image. Great color and composition. You nailed this one. Thanks for dropping by my place.
I've never seen a red mushroom.
A fantastic picture Love the red of the mushrooms, the curl in the birch and the little spider
Impressive mushrooms with a very fitting for the photo.
Miniature mushrooms in great color combination with the moss. Such different in size of mushroom from my entry
Excellent vignette! The details are superb. I love the moss as well as the mushroom.

awesome photo, we don't seem to have the array of colour fungi in Australia that they have in other countries
Wonderful composition, and what a vivid red that mushroom is!
that's why I love fall
Wow...oh wow. Such beauty!!
Here is a link to my MACRO MONDAY Do hope you can stop by for a visit!
what a gorgeous colour for a mushroom, I can see why you could not resist photographing these little beauties.
I love that splash of red...I just saw a red mushroom for the first time this year, they are so cool!
Great shot - the mushrooms are so vivid. Glad you pointed out the other critters!
I see the scary spider! Love finding surprises like that when I upload photos. :) I love the orange fungus! So bright against the rest of nature. :)
This "little" scene is magnificent! It's beautiful! I've never seen a red mushroom, either. You composed this shot so nicely!
Perfect capture for ruby.
I'm sorry for the first comment. It was for another blog. Kindly delete it. Thanks.

I thought this is inside an aquarium. The arrangement and color combination is beautiful. Haven't seen a red mushroom and this one is fantastic! Thanks for sharing and the visit!
I have never seen a red mushroom!!
I'm with Dianne - never seen a red mushroom but it gives this image a great punch of color.
Very nice ruby find!
