Inkcap Mushrooms in March

This is the population with the ozonium, not visible in these images. These freshly-expanded caps were rather crowded, such that the stereo pairs are rather restrained in their 3D effect.

EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm macro at f9, weak sunlight, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.

Harold

Harold that is a very nice subject - and the light and colour set it off beautifully.

Thanks, Peter.

Each year I promise myself to photograph the rhubarb leaves daily, from the same viewpoint. They grow so rapidly that it could make a movie. As usual, I had neglected it but the cold weather put a hold on the growth.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Clematis armandii in Stereo

We had a plant for many years but the deer nibbled it, such that it never had more than a couple of leaves and did not grow or flower.

We planted a second one in a neglected greenhouse. Here, it has grown well and just produced flowers for the first time. It is one of the "fragrant" species (which are mostly white) but neither my wife nor myself can detect any scent.

The backgrounds where it is growing offer few good angles for images and the depth needed for stereos makes wide apertures impractical.

EM-1 Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, daylight, hand-held.

Here are some crosseye stereos.

Harold.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

An Early Crop of Cup Fungi

When we had our Weeping Willow felled we used some freshly-cut logs to border a new, slightly-raised, bed for strawberries. Spent compost from grow bags (2017 tomatoes) was used to provide "soil".

Only this week have I become aware (told by Pat) of a fairly profuse growth of cup fungi, of a single species, around the edge of the compost. The first (largest) cup is ca 50mm across and the second ca 25mm. Most of the species which this might be should not be around until late summer or autumn.

The stereo is crosseye.

EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f14 1/13 sec, 1/15 sec, sunlight.

Harold

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Mercurialis perennis, Dogs Mercury, a Euphorbia common in woodland, forming green carpets and flowering copiously at this time of year. Like many Euphorbias, the flowers are small green things , so you are forgiven for thinking that it isn't actually flowering. This is the male flower.

At small apertures in daylight the image on the sensor is often so dim that the framing and focus jump around in the viewfinder, even with manual focus. I wanted to see if I could overcome this by attaching a 3W diode torch to the front of the lens. This would illuminate the subject, keeping the image in the viewfinder steady and sharp. This light would not contribute significantly to the flash-illuminated image.

This worked and, rather than waste the images, some are given here. The magnification by the lens was 2:1 (the middle of its optimised range) with the m4/3 crop making it 4:1. I set the lens at f11 or f16, the latter probably producing the images used,. Any cropping did not significantly alter the magnification.

The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, Tominon 135mm on extension (345mm) to give the required magnification.

Harold



I have just taken delivery (at a similar cost) of a JML Optical 135mm f4.5, which seems to deliver the same magnification on the same extension. This calls for an image quality comparison test when the macro season gets going.
