Ceratiomyxa poroides: A Delicate Rarity

This is a slime mould but of a very individual appearance. We found this rare beauty in 2016, on rotten deciduous wood on the local chalk hills. It was found during a fungus foray by Thames Valley Fungus Group. Mike Harrison found it, as subsequently identified it, adding that this was only the eleventh recorded British find of the species, which had been thought to be a Mediterranean species.

The structures remind me of the early stages of building of a wasp (Vespula) nest.

All were shot with a FOV of 17mm, some being cropped slightly. The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, Kiron 105mm at f16, twin TTL RC flash, hand-held.

I posted the images previously but I though the delicate structures were worth a rework.

Harold

Very nice Harold. I love the cross-eyed stereo images.

Re: Ceratiomyxa poroides: A Delicate Rarity

I really enjoy looking at your images.

I'm amazed the amount of the many patterns and colours they produce.

Thanks for these.

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.
I'm enquiring, both for myself, and aa couple of friends who I'm sure would be interested in viewing them.
Cheers.

Thanks. Paul.

You would be surprised how many viewers, even in macro forums, don't comment on whether they can may them work or not.

The slight difference in plane of focus of L & R in this case works like focus stacking, adding to the 3D effect.

Thanks, Bill.

My host for these are FM Macro, where I post as "e6filmuser". I normally just duplicate them here, pasting the text and the image addresses. I have probably put some in the fungus thread before, although they do really belong there, being a primitive animal form (colonial amoebae).

I also copy fungus images across from FM Macro. They mostly go in the fungus thread but any I consider might be of general interest are given their own thread. Sometimes that is because of a particular lens I used.

So, there is no separate album anywhere. I have to say that I have problems finding some of them again by searching within either website, often because my title was worded to arouse interest rather than specifying the organism. A lot are under the genus name. Genera include: Trichia, Hemitrichia, Arcyria, Enteridium, Lycoperdon, Ceratiomyxa, Comatrichia, Cribaria, Didymium, Fuligo, Lamproderma, Leocarpus, Physarum, Reticularia, Badhamia, Stemonitis, and Tubifera.

It happens that I visited a UK fungus website this week and found the links on their Myxomycete (slime mould) page had been hacked. I have agreed to send them some links so I wild be drawing up a list of websites, some with biology of the SMs, and lots of image galleries (none of my images). I will also post a copy of the list here somewhere. That should be available before the end of the month.

Cheers Harold, I'd already found you over there; I was trying to work out if you had them in an album on the site that I'd failed to locate as I'm not a member over there.

Some beautifully detailed photos, that I thought my friends in The Sorby Natural History Society - Fungus Group would appreciate. (two links there)

Thanks, Bill.

By all means forward the list.

I see that Sorby use Flickr. I wonder if they still will, with rumoured changes. (I forget the details but suspect money is involved).

As for details: To show all of that I use quite a lot of Micro Contrast adjustment against defraction blur.

Membership of the site (lots of forums, not just macro) is free if you just want to view and reply (not very much annually) but I have to pay to upload images. If you have images hosted elsewhere you can post them free via their image addresses.

I tried a button I have not tried before, which is only available to me. I can see all my image uploads, 351 pages, each with 15 images, a total of 5,250 to date. Almost all of those are macro.
