Re: Ceratiomyxa poroides: A Delicate Rarity

Re: Ceratiomyxa poroides: A Delicate Rarity

I do like these macro fungi/slime mould photos.
Are they in a separate album at Fredmiranda, or do they only appear in individual posts there.

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

The trouble is that it takes a long time to research and come up with a structured line of thought. Is it any wonder that, at the time of the vote, most people, myself included, didn't research as...

Re: 12-100mm Pro, works very well with extension tubes.

I've used the 40-150mm F2.8 with the cheapo auto tubes and that works well too.

If it does become necessary, to close the thread, which I can well understand, all I would request, is that it be locked rather than deleted.
