A favourite of mine, (and common around here) these ethereal toothy jelly fungus are a fun challenge to capture and present. Often tiny creatures can be seen travelling in the crevasses between the teeth. Apparently they can rehydrate after a dry spell. These specimens were 2-4cm, and I added contrast to highlight the textures and make the background more stark. I jammed myself, the tripod, and a light between two logs to get this perspective.

Well, thank you Wayne, for going the extra mile in your preparation and line of attack in getting this amazing natural history photograph. I had never heard of these and, frankly, am not sure I would have been able to identify them as shrooms, so thanks also for the edification. Your composition, lighting, and tack-sharp focus have created something that National Geographic can seldom match. I seem to be placing the majority of your submissions in my favorites file, but there*s a simple reason for that~~your work calls for it.

Happy Trails.
