Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Woodland Mushrooms and Autumn Colour

There are images from September 2016. At that time of year I would have been very busy with such images from official surveys and put these aside, unprocessed. Better late than never!

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f9 or f11, sunlight, hand-held.

The stereo is crosseye.

Harold

Seed Head of Clematis alpina "Willy"

This is many months after flowering ended. The sunlight suits it well.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/50 at f11, hand-held.

The stereo is crosseye.

Mark,

I'm not too good on some brackets but I think it's a Turkey Tail, the commonest one which looks like that. The experts now put this in Trametes.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Stereos of Dead Man's Finger Xylaria polymorpha

This is one of the few species of fungus, other than crusts, likely to be seen in British woodland during the winter months. These were growing out of much-rotted, moss-covered trunks of fallen trees.

The second one has a slightly backlit effect.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/40 at f8 and 1/640 at f3.2, hand held.

I can't remember why I chose the second pair of settings but they are not what I would normally have picked.

Both pairs are crosseye.

Harold

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Life Emerging From A Rotten Log 1
This is how I first saw them. They were about the size of a finger tip.

The orange/brown fuzz is an asexual stage (ozonium) of this or, more likely, a much more numerous related species on the same logs.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f8 & f10, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.

For what happened next, see tomorrow's post.

Life Emerging From A Rotten Log 2

A follow-on from yesterday‘s upload: This was 7 days later. They were considerably larger but had some expansion still to go.

The orange/brown fuzz is an asexual stage (ozonium) of this or, more likely, a much more numerous related species on the same logs.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, various, from f7.1 to f11, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.

For what happened next, see tomorrow's post.

Life Emerging From A Rotten Log 3

This is a follow-on from yesterday‘s, and the concluding upload:

This was 3 days later. They were fully expanded inkcap mushrooms. The taxonomy of the inkcaps is difficult but I would call this Coprinopsis lagopus.

They were attached so delicately that one was detached by the air movement as I walked when carrying the log.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, various, f11, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.
