Chris,
I can assure you that it has not. - The fruitbodies are seen in the photo exactly where they were growing.
However, I will readily admit to having removed stray blades of grass etc. to get them out of the way of shot.
(When I photograph fungi I try to get aesthetically pleasing photos and not just record shots!).

Although it might look like the fruitbody has been sliced off, it is in fact a small plant leaf that happened to be growing in front of the Waxcap's stem. ;)

I attach below, a crop from the full size image file, so that you may better see it:-
Close-up front of stem (base) - 3rd fruitbody along.

I couldn't believe you were up to such deception but it did look like a clinical slice - I take it all back. :oops:
