Mucilago crustacea.

ENGLISH NOTE IN THE LOWER PART

Esto es muy pequeño, está sacado con el macro de 60mm. a la mínima distancia de enfoque.

A las 18:50 horas en el bosque es casi de noche, y estábamos a punto de meternos en el coche para volver a casa cuando Cris advirtió en el suelo este extraño ser creciendo en hojas de castaño. Aprovechando la escasa luz disponible, saco estas fotos de larga exposición para nuestra colección particular.

En la foto superior foto se aprecia un ejemplar más joven, y el en la segunda en estado de maduración, donde se aprecian los "huevos" con extraña forma en los que se convierte el plasmodio.

En vez de dar una explicación aburrida acerca de este Myxomicete, recomiendo ver ESTA descripcion EXCELENTE de la web de Clive [fungiman], es fascinante y muy educacional. También tiene grandes fotos de otras especies de este increible reino. Gracias Cive.

Encuadres originales sin recortes, solo ajuste de luz y mascara de enfoque.

Mucilago crustacea.

This is very small, it is Shot with the 60mm. macro at the minimun focusing distance.

At 18:50h. in the forest is almost night, and we where about to get into the car to return home, when Cris saw this strange being in the ground growing on chestnut leaves. Trying to get advantage of the little available light, she made this long exposure photos for our personal collection.

In the upper shot a younger specimen is shown, and in the lower one in maduration process, where the change to the extrange shaped "eggs" stage can be seen.

In stead of giving a boring explanation fo what is this slime mould, I recomend you to see THIS excellent DESCRIPTION from Clive´s [fungiman] web site, it is fascinating and very educational. He also has great shots of other species of this incredible kindom. Thanks Clive.

Hope you like!

Hi Felipe.
Skillfully executed picture. Great reproduction of the smallest details and colour tones of the main captured object. Perfect lighting, exposure and contrast. My com-pliments and TFS.
Alexei.

Estupenda captura que nunca diría fuera tan pequeña. Magníficos detalles.
Una nota de lo más formativa, así como el enlace.
Saludos, JL.

'At 18:50h. in the forest is almost night [...]' ha, ha, Felipe, this is really funny part of your note :-) Come to Poland to meet real, autumnal DARKNESS :-)))

Great shot my friend. It probably won't earn much point, but I like it very much. Interesting subject, great photo as for hard light condition you mentioned. I love top photo - slime mould looks dry and very fragile. Good, educational post my friend!

BTW - we'll go to forest this Sunday, probably last 'fungipatrol' this year.

That is beautiful. You can see how small it is from the leaf texture in the BG. Stunning details amazing considering the light conditions. Lovely

Otra de esas presentaciones Felipe que no descollan por la belleza de imagen en sí, pero como otras tantas con excelente composición y valor pedagógico.
Los datos que mencionas sobre las velocidades utilizadas, grafican la dificultad de la captura.
Excelente composición y publicación, aunque por mi cortedad sigo sin entender a este reino tan extraño.
Un gran saludo para ambos... Ricardo
