After three straight days of rain the fungi are coming on strong in our woods.
Thanks, Nick. Indeed, mounted on the PlatyPod it is ideal for subjects like this.Nice—you and the 50 are bonding well.
Thanks, John.Looks like you had a lot of phun! Been very wet up here too in N. Va. Prolific amount of 'shrooms and such. Nice job.
Yup, they are prolific now.Pfantastic Pfunguses...pfungii??
Thanks, Rick. I don't know about goat's beard, but it is commonly referred to as coral fungus.Beautiful Jim. Is the last one goat's beard?
Thanks, Mike. Cloudy days like this are best for doing this type of photography as you know.Wonderful environmental portraits! Thoroughly enjoyable diffused light, compositions and color.
Thanks, Wade.Excellent series, I see why a member nominated this for feature!
Last year at this time it was so dry here that there were no mushrooms in the forests at all!So foreign to my area where everything is dry and burning up!! I loved seeing all these excellent photos of such interesting varieties. The Z50 seems like the perfect camera for you!
I was perfectly happy with my D5500 back then.It's a good thing the Z50 wasn't released until October, huh.
Thanks, Allan. I got lucky with the light, though in the forest where these live the light is almost always diffuse.Excellent - like the lighting a lot.
Many thanks, Bob (I presume).The baby Z in good hands can produce a very nice pictures.
Thanks, Phil. Too bad about your lost opportunity. The fungus season is yet young so you should have some more chances.These are excellent, Jim.
I need to get the little 16-50 out more often!
As so many have mentioned, it's been really dry in our area too. Last night we go 2+ inches of rain. When I took the dog out this morning, we had some shrooms in our backyard, which was a first. When I saw them, I thought of you!
Wouldn't ya know it... This is my "in the office" rotation week, so I couldn't attempt to photograph them. I'm sure they will burn up today, before I get home.
Many thanks, Eric.Late to viewing these, Jim, but wanted to echo and add to what folks have said above. Great shooting, great eye, excellent compositions, and terrific examples. Thanks, buddy.
