Exact location: Praia dos Buizinhos, Porto Covo. A tiny...

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Focus stacking is fixed at 8 shots so I varied aperture from f3.5 to f5.6 depending on the size of the fungi and used a narrow focus differential 3-4 increasing it a bit at higher f stops.
