    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.

    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.
