More Cyathus striatus Bird's Nest Fungus Images

In habitat these look like they have been carved from the wood chips on which they grow. The texture, to touch and visibly, is very wooden. This causes much hesitation in processing the RAW images, such that they tend to look unnatural.

This set includes views from above and close-up of the "eggs". The stereos are crosseye.

EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, with Raynox MSN-202 attached for closer shots. For the highest magnification the Oly is replaced by a reversed Schneider HM40 plus x 1.5 TC (FOV 6mm wide). All with triple TTL flash, camera in manual mode and lens at f11 or f16.


The body is willing but the mind is weak.
