Calocera viscosa ~ Portmeirion Woods

Whilst taking a walk through Portmeirion Woods, I spotted these interesting little fellas@

Calocera viscosa - Portmeirion
Despite being a supposedly common type of fungi, this was the first time I had ever encountered them. To me, the appeared like little woodland elf campfires and I was half-convinced that when I went to identify them I would find they had a name such as Faeryfire Fungus or the like. I have to admit to being a little disappointed when I discoved they were called Yellow Stagshorn fungi :( Beautiful little things tho, aren't they!
