At one time they worked fine for me, but now I have 'wet macula degeneration' they don't.

A Rare Lepiota L. magnispora syn L ventriospora

I had never seen this before, the rough surface of the stem being instantly recognisable. It was almost hidden beneath sprawling brambles. Fortunately, a narrow shaft of sunlight illuminated it.

In guidebooks it may be found under either name.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/30 f6.3 ISO 800, hand-held.

The stereo is crosseye.

Stump Puffball Lycoperon piriforme via Laowa 7.5mm

These puffball fungi are up to about the size of a golf ball. This colony was in deep shade (see the darker images). It was also quite extensive.

The low light required a wider aperture than I would have liked, together with high ISO and long exposures.

The only UWA I had with me was the Laowa 7.5mm. A 24mm would have done the job.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Laowa 7.5mm f2 macro, 1/8 to 1/30 sec f5.6 ISO 2000, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye

Some of the images have been considerably brightened and the shadows brightened.

Perhaps you can spot the group of puffballs with their tops bitten off. This is typical of deer grazing.

Harold

















Here are some images, from another wood, which I intended to upload last year but never did.

Bay Tree Flowers

We mostly encounter the Bay as a leaf flavouring casseroles. We have a "tree" (about waist high) which provides our culinary needs. I hadn't noticed it flowering before this summer.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f10 at 1/100 or 1/125 ISO 250, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.

Echinopsis Rose Quartz

A bit of summer colour. This is one of the hybrid plants in my collection.

I have reduced the brightness to show the colours better.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/100 to 1/160 at f10 ISO 800, hand-held.

Echinopsis Serape x Heidefeuer

Another hybrid, this one of a more intense colour, which I prefer, if I had to chose, but variety is good to have.

This flower did not fully flatten out the petals on one side.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/60 at 10 & f11 ISO 800, hand-held.

I have reduced the brightness to control highlights and slightly intensify the colours.

The stereos are crosseye.

The Twig Parachute Marasmiellus ramealis

This tiny mushroom (up to about the size of my smallest fingernail) grows on fallen twigs and branches on the deciduous woodland floor. We found these at the weekend.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/15 and 1/30 at f8 ISO 800, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.

As a bonus, there is a mirid (capsid) bug (Orthops sp?) in the first image.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Inkcap & Fern Sharing a Niche

I had been sawing some huge logs into pieces which I could (only just) carry a short distance to a wheelbarrow. I had loaded the wheelbarrow once and taken the wood to my car. As I was wheeling the second load past some huge logs, used as a garden feature, I spotted this little group.

I knew that the mushrooms, Common Inkcap Coprinopsis atramentaria, were freshly emerged, as they last only a day or two before wilting. I fetched my camera.

I was not expecting the task of photographing them to be as challenging as it was.The problem lay not in the subject but in my arm muscles. As I framed the subject, gripping the camera with both hands, the camera moved rapidly and violently from side to side. Even when I supported both my elbows on a nearby log, the shaking continued. My arms had become tuned to heavy work and could not give fine control. After a few minutes, fine control returned.

The fern was a cultivated one planed in the niche, which had been formed by rotting wood falling away over many months.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/100 at f7.1 and 1/10 at f11 ISO 800, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.
