Hi Catherine,

Again a superb macro.
Clarity and gorgeous colors.
Interesting topics suggested by you today, great playing.
Have a beautiful night,

A finely focused fungus scene with rich, saturated colours Catherine, I think a slight cropping from above might improve the composition.

Great fungi image Catherine!!
The detail is very sharp and the DOF is great. Gorgeous natural colors with just the right amount of exposure.
When I first viewed your thumbnail image I thought it was some kind of butterfly.

Hello Catherine,
Excellent capture of these bracket fungi in beautiful sunlight. Lovely colours and fine sharp details. A pleasing composition too!
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Hi Cathy,

Fabulous composition with a common, but often overlooked species. Colors and lights are fantastic, so is the composition. Simple yet very effective and quite pleasant. Bravo Cath.
