  • Schizophyllum commune Split Gill Fungus, an Oversexed Fungus

    How many sexes would you think a fungus could have? You will have guessed wrong"

    This is a bracket-type fungus with gills, rather like the Oyster Mushroom.

    This nice example was on the huge cut end of a felled woodland tree in November.

    Photographing the underside was very tricky. The trunk was in the ton league so I placed the camera underneath, with flash guns either side and I relied on AF and TTL flash via the rear screen.

    Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, hand-held.or on the ground, pointed upwards,1/15 f7.1 (daylight) and 1/60 f5 (flash).
