Fungi are fasinating icons of the time in autumn when the ground dampens with the wet weather and rot creeps in. It's made the team feel very seasonal watching your fungal photos arriving in the BBC Autumnwatch Flickr group. So here are some of our favourites from your fungal photos so far...

It's the wonderful colour of these incredible mushrooms that catches the attention. You just wouldn't expect something this vibrant to appear on the forest floor. A great find and fantastic capture by Lee.

This fascinating fungus was completely new to most of us. An interesting shape and an excellent discovery.

We like the soft focus of these gorgeous glistening inkcaps on everything but those curled up inky edges.

The unique perspective of this shot by Brightglass perfectly demonstrates how these mushrooms manage to grow on such precarious ledges.

These crust fungi are really interesting for their unique layered structure. They must be easy to miss when overgrown in moss.

It's well-known and easily identifiable but fly agaric is still one of the most delightful toadstools to look at. A brilliant portrait of a familiar fungi.

A busy capture by Richard with a wonderful contrast between the globular mushroom tops and the grained birch bark.

We absolutely couldn't resist including this incredible shot by Gale (a bit of a fungi photography expert it would appear!) for its stunning depiction of the fungi gills in a porcelain mushroom.

As ever please keep sharing your autumnal wildlife photography on the BBC Autumnwatch Flickr group where you can also get help with identifying species you've photographed or just discuss wildlife and wildlife photography with the Autumnwatch community.

Check back next week for our favourites of your migrant photos or for more beauties have a look at last week's early autumn favourites.
