Over the third

The lovely conidial stage of Botryobasidium aureum, which is in reality far more orange(gold) than my camera is prepared to give it credit for.

Botryobasidium aureum (conidial stage)
The Mycena below is the kind of thing you think you have no chance of identifying. It's the Dewdrop Bonnet and on its stipe it has tortuose cystidia. These hold onto water droplets and so are responsible for both its English and scientific names. I've already recorded it but it's a lovely thing.

Hemimycena tortuosa
