Yes another mushroom shot. Had I the gift of forethought or at least lived 10 miles closer to this mushroom I would have swapped out lenses and used a macro lens to take the shot. Instead I made due with what I had on hand for lenses. This shot required getting close to nature and contorting into unnatural angles. To top things off while I was down there I received a scolding from a squirrel who took exception to my invasion of its territory. After straitening up I hobbled out of the area as best as I could whilst protecting my soft noggin from possible aerial bombardment by the shifty rodent.

Enjoy and your comments welcomed.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

That shroom is big enough to hide under from the wee squirrels nuts mate

But after all that you got a dandy shot and you can throw acorns at the squirrel to distract him while running away!

Nice image. Love the rich color in this and of course the perspective. It's the straightening up I find so difficult, lol.
