    lovely shots; are they some shaggy ink caps I spy? :smile:

    I seem to be spotting more and more mushrooms this year for some reason...

    Thanks! I now have to confess I know zilch about mushrooms :redface:, I just happen to love the colours and shapes they come in and I've decided that I'd try to shoot some (with a camera that is) this autumn. According to Wikipedia it's probably a Coprinus Comatus indeed, although I'd happily leave that call to someone else :smile:.

    Some from last weekend. No interesting ones today, maybe mushroom time is over.

    Cracking shots,

    most recent one I've snapped is this one that had been kicked and had it's stem broken.

    Also, might I ask which lens you used? I myself shot the above with the Panny 20/1.7 which isn't ideal, but was all I had to hand.

    Hi, all pics shown here have been shot with a 100mm macro legacy lens, the Minolta MD Macro 100/4. Any other decent macro 50...100mm lens will do, I guess. I prefer 100mm because I like the distant perspective it produces. Mushrooms don't move a lot, so a manual focus legacy lens is perfectly suitable and a whole lot cheaper than a native ยต4/3 macro lens like the Panny 45/2.8.

    I should mention as well that I use a tripod that can be positioned at low height and that I have to crouch to do the composition, which is a bit cumbersome given my age of 57 :smile:. The GH2's tilt and swivel LCD is a big bonus here, especially for vertical shots. Good luck!

    Next weekend I won't have time to go on mushroom hunt, I'm afraid there won't be a lot to shoot after that.

    Took our dog for his morning walk and spotted these. After some duties I went back hoping that kids and other dogs wouldn't have trampled the "toadstools" (literal translation from the Dutch word for mushrooms) and I still got these shots.

    Nice shots.

    I don't think I can use any of these for my green bean casserole, though.

    I found this one at Maybury State Park in Michigan. I love that having the camera while hiking helps me find more things to appreciate in nature.
