Hi, this is my first post on TrekNature!

I captured this fungi at the Singapore Botanical Gardens. I found them rather unusual and thought it might make an interesting picture.

Hope you like it!

PS: Anyone able to identify what fungus this is?

So welcome...
This is a nice capture. On focus, vivid coluurs,good compo.
Well done
Waiting for next post;-)

Great shot:) Very good colours and composition. Great depth of focus. Very sharp and detailed. I am not a specialist but I don;t think these are fungi. Looke like the fruits of this tree.
Thanks for sharing,

fantastic shot!!

Nice shot! As Sergey suggests, it's not a fungus - it's the fruiting bodies of the tree itself. I'm fairly certain the correct term for this was "cauliflowery", meaning to produce flowers/fruits directly from the stem, but I can't find an online source to back me up! Similarly I suspect it of being a Eugenia species, but I can't back that up either... Another species that exhibits this trait is the Redbud (Cercis canadensis). Focus is good, and I like the use of DOF to isolate them from the background - about the only thing I'd consider is having the stem run diagonally across the frame so there wasn't quite so much empty space at the top, either that or crop it. Anyway, a good capture :D

Welcome to TrekNature!

Hi Stephanie, welcome to TN. This is a nice first shot. You've done well with the exposure and I like the background.

This is no fungus, it looks like some kind of fig tree to me, and those are the fruits.

Well done, look forward to seeing more of your work.

Welcome to treknature!
Very nice picture you got here - good light control and focus.I like the green background.
A small critique - I would perhaps put the object a tad higher in the picture, but thats just my own "nitty gritty" opinion.
I`m really looking forward to see more of your pictures here! You seem to have a great eye for good pictures :)

Bienvenida a TN Stephanie... bella composición con nitidez y buen control de la luz, que permite apreciar muy bien no sólo los colores naturales del entorno, sino también los blancos tan difíciles de los pequeños hongos.
Adecuado encuadre, DOF y POV, completan una interesante primera entrega
Saludos... Ricardo

Welcome to TN Stephanie... beautiful composition with sharpness and good control of the light that allows to appreciate very well not only the natural colors of the environment, but also the whites so difficult of the small mushrooms.
Appropriate framing, DOF and POV, they complete an interesting one first post.
Regards... Ricardo

... later :)

Weird little things.... maybe blooms of the tree?

Hello Stephanie!
Very nice shot. I like the fact that you decided to position the subject slightly tilted rather than parallel to the frame. Good exposure and sharpness, nice background blur. Congratulations,

Great choice for the first post! Very interesting looking fruits that beautifully presented! pov, framing, vivid bg all are very nice!
