Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Common Earth-ball Scleroderma citrinum

This globular fungus fruiting body is often seen on the ground, occasionally on rotting stumps,in organically rich woodland.

These look rather young and will become tinted with yellow as they age.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/13 at f8 ISO 1000, hand-held.

The stereo is crosseye.

Harold

Thanks for your help....
Use:

In File Menu Select Left/Right Image

In Stereo menu select side by side*

In View menu select fit to window.

If it doesn't look right try View menu Swap Left/Right

In Adjust menu select Auto adjustment

Save stereo image. Warning: It will save to the last folder you saved stereo images to unless you specify the path. You need do this only once for a session. If you forget, start to save any image and see where it wants to put it.

The default is to save a JPEGs. I work with TIFFs and have to specify for the first of a batch.

I don't recommend the cropping feature. Either use cropped images or PS (vertical only).

At some stage you may want to choose borders and I still find that confusing. *

* These settings are saved for your next session.

I normally save the final JPEG stereo at 1200 pixels wide.

Special tip:

If one of the pair of images differs in e.g. exposure or sharpness, in PS select the rectangular marquee tool and draw it around the image. Do what you need to do than close the rectangle.

Have fun.

Harold

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Common Eyelash Fungus Scutellinia scutellata

Two days ago, as part of a fungus survey of a local nature reserve, I found a small number of these fruiting bodies.

The location was an overflow channel for the adjacent lake. Due to the lack of rain this summer, no water had flower for a considerable time. The mud was moist and squishy but not enough for my feet to sink into it.

On the mud were a number of rotten chunks of wood. Some were clearly the remains of branches. Other were more amorphous. It was on the latter that I found, maybe, 6 examples. I took photographs at the location and took a small piece of wood, bearing two FBs home, where I took further shots.

The outcome was not fully satisfactory. The large FB was rather dirty and removal of debris tends to damage the fungus. Also, they were rather small (1-2 mm diam), withing the range of size of a smaller species for which the habitat was perfect.

So I returned to revisit the location. I found the same piece of wood and took photos. Then I found two other similar lumps of wood, each with dozens of the fungi.

I took many further images, all on location. Some were by sunlight and others by flash. One of the stereo pairs is made form one of each, adjusted.

Low magnification ones were by 50mm macro lens The higher magnifications were with the Laowa at x2.5, giving a FOV 7mm wide. The latter shows the FBs to be around 3-4mm wide.

Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Laowa 25mm f2.8 2.5x-5x ultra-macro at x2.5 & at f8 or f11, twin TTL flash hand-held (arms resting on the ground).

The stereos are crosseye.

Harold

These look a bit like Snapdragons but they are tiny compered with those.

Jim
The purple one grows, of its own volition, in our garden every year and the Toadflax Brocade Moth lays eggs on some plants.It is a summer species and is probably coming to an end now.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Parasola plicatilis in a Muddy Pond Bed

There are seasonal ponds which can be little more than a depression lined with squishy mud in dry weather. This was such a habitat, although this colony of inkcap mushrooms was close to the edge.

With caps 20mm or so across, this species was previously in Coprinus. Its deeply-pleated cap is diagnostic.

The pond was in quite deep shade,giving strong side-lighting, from a shaft of sunlight, on the immature cap..

The stereos are crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro,1/10 at f9, 1/15 at f8, ISO 1000, hand-held.

Harold
