The images were shot on two consecutive days.

The stereos are crosseye.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Holly Speckle Trochila ilicina on Dead Holly Leaves

We have a mature Holly tree in our garden and there are dead leaves beneath it, accumulated over many years. I was searching for possible fungi or slime moulds when I noticed that many leaves had these black speckles over most or all of their upper surface. There was no significant signs of the infection on the undersides.

I have since learned that this is a summer infection specific to dead Holly leaves. It is an Asomycete fungus.The holly leaves are still very shiny when long dead. That the fruiting bodies of the fungus are also shiny suggests that they are subcutaneous (below the surface).

The higher magnifications were shot with the Laowa 25mm x2.5 to x5. I exposed by sunlight.

Harold

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Fomitopsis betulina Birch Polypore: 2 Generations

The white brackets are a familiar sight on elderly standing or fallen Silver Birch trees. Less often seen are the new fruiting bodies, which start of brown, There is one of each on the trunk of a recumbent tree in this image.

The sunlight was just about to move off this spot and it was to quick for me to get a second image for a good stereo pair.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f10, hand-held.

Harold

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Massed Colony of Lasiosphaeria ovinum

It is only recently that I became aware of this distinctive but tiny fungus species. It lives on dead wood, where I first found it in our garden. I have seen it in a few other localities but this impressive population was in our garden, and a wrist-thick Sycamore log, dead for at least four years.

If you want to see magnified images see:

https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/to...2996/#14604997

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f6.3 or f8, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.

Harold

Ganoderma australe the Southern Bracket Fungus

It was on a Silver Birch tree at Heath Lake Nature Reserve.

https://www.first-nature.com/fungi/g...a-australe.php

The stereos are crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/15 at f9 ISO 1000, hand-held.

This is a good example of the surprisingly long exposure in woodland on a sunny day.

Nice detail but stacking loses the perspective.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Colour Coordination: Yellow

This rotting tree stump had some fruiting bodies of a slime mould and of a mushroom

The mushroom, the Sulphur Tuft Hypholoma fasciculare is common on rotting stumps and is usually yellow (sometimes tinged with green).

The slime mould Fuligo septica, sometimes called the Scrambled Egg SM, is frequently seen on such stumps and is bright yellow in its first few hours.

The young Fuligo (first two images) has some emerging buttons of the mushroom tucked up close to it. The lighting was from a narrow shaft of sunlight through a gap in the woodland trees.

Another Fuligo (other images) on the same stump is possibly several days older, with a whitish surface and starting to crack open to release spores.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f8 (first two) or f10, ISO 320, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.

Harold

Nice one. It could be even better if:

a) you cropped both images to make the subject at the same level.

b) you subdued that highlight.


a) is easiest done by auto adjust in Stereo Photo Maker.
