Resembling a troop of alien warriors, this detachment of fungi certainly were unwanted intruders on my front lawn. I suspect it might be Honey Fungus but so far have been unable to confirm this.
Fungi are quite easy to photograph - well they don't move very fast, do they ? However you have to get down to their level and move in close.
Of course a macro lens is a help and a tripod or bean-bag support an absolute necessity.
