Coprinus Comatus.
I know ziltch about fungi, but I spotted this one whilst walking my dogs in the land behind my house. I went back for a camera, and I now believe this is a Shaggy Ink Cap, a.k.a. Lawyers Wig, proper name Coprinus Comatus. Google tells me it is quite common.

Was that recent? It would be well out of season.

It is one of the few Inkcaps still in Coprinus, others having been moved to Coprinellus or Coprinopsis.

The pre-inky stage, when the gills are still pink, is a delicacy.

Some Lichens in Stereo

In October I picked up some pieces of rotten tree branches from the lawn in a large country house. I thought that the lichens (two main species) growing on them might make some decent stereo pairs. Anyway, here are some crosseye pairs.

EM-1 (manual mode), f16, triple TTL flash.

It was taken the same day as I posted it, but be aware that I do live in SW France. The weather here has been very wet for weeks. Does that make a difference?

Moisture is important but its season in the UK is late summer to autumn. Sometimes their (mushrooms') season can be disrupted e.g. after an unusually long drought.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Myxomycete Looks Good Enough to Eat

Yesterday, I removed a flat piece of timber from where it had lain for a week or two on top of a pile of wood chips. In one spot I found this colony of a slime mould. The whiteness shows that it is one with lime in its outer layers. I have not seen one of those in such close groupings before. The larger fruiting bodies are about 1mm across.

I was trying my Tominon 135mm macro lens at it optimum magnification of 2:1 (4:1 with the crop factor). EM-1 and triple TTL RC flash. I took some images at f8 and other at f11 (nominal, set on lens). The lens is fully manual so no aperture data are given in the EXIF. I suspect that these are all f11 ones.

I think it did quite well. I will upload some similar shots form my usual setup in due course.

The stereo is crosseye.

One or two images have been cropped.

Harold
