Dacryopinax Elegans | Beautiful little yellow mushrooms in macro

Hi Fungi Lovers This is my first post in the community. I hope you can enjoy photos of mushrooms that are shared and accept me to be part of this community.

I found yellow fungus in the side yard of the house, growing on a piece of wood that was already rotten. This mushroom starts to bloom and fresh from evening to morning. When the day gets hot towards noon, the mushrooms begin to dry up and wither. This fungus will bloom again when the weather starts to get a little shady, when the sun's heat begins to disappear and the day begins to fall in the afternoon. For several days I had time to observe this fungus growing bigger every day.
