Harvested wild mushroom photography
I have a fascination with photography and mushrooms. In particular wild mushrooms. From time to time I am compelled to harvest a wild mushroom and study it. I truly have no idea of what I’m harvesting. With regards to whether the mushroom is actually poisonous, or in fact edible and yummy. It just looks interesting, and worth examining with a camera lens.
This post features a close-up study of harvested wild mushrooms I found. Their teeny tiny caps were protruding out of some timber pathing surrounding the swimming pool. The detail in these black and white pictures is made possible by the extreme magnification of the macro lens. For example, the magnified photographs of the mushroom cap reveal the wrat detail, and a gorgeous pattern resembling the fur of an animal.
