More than your average mushroom

During and after my deer hunt I took the opportunity to snap some of the wildlife specialties of autumn, mainly in the Cyril Hart Arboretum.
OK not leaves, but fungi. Here are a few of the more colourful finds, with my best guess at names for most. The usual caveats apply - I expect to get mammals, most birds and a lot of flowers right, fungi and insects are harder. So if the name is wrong bear with me and please let me know.

Yellow Brain
Yellow Stagshorn
(Small and very bright making good exposure difficult in deep shade!)

Common Funnel
Glistening Inkcap
Purple BrittlegillBlack Bulgar
(Not so much a fungus, more a rash)

Violet Domecap
(Really not sure about this one, but it was lovely)
