Deceiver (Laccaria laccata)

The circle of life. In a very dark and largely greenery free forest, the ground beneath a broken pine tree stump (likely rotted from the inside by fungus) proves to be a vibrant spot, not only surrounded by fungi of several species (including this beautiful Deceiver and it's Amethyst cousins), the sunshine now able to reach the forest floor now means that several pine saplings are now able to start the long term competition to fill that whole in the canopy!
