I'm always drawn to this mushroom - such cheerful vibrant colours - it is difficult to overlook. The colours can vary from very vivid egg yellow to more toned down colours including hues of orange and pink.
The photograph shows a mature example whereby the margin edge has become wavy, thinner and more pale. A younger example would have a thicker margin edge. This was found on an old beech log which has been lying on the ground for many years.
