Fungus
Posted By: Bramela, 03-25-2008, 12:05 PM

A couple of photos of Fungii. We have had a very wet summer and these are thriving, in many different forms. Great subjects for the keen photographer.

I was afraid to read a terrible story about lens fungus, but this was not the lens forum and the photos are wiping all fears away with their beauty, thanks for sharing these.

Good point, Gawan, I didnt think of it that way. Is a bit frightening thinking of lens Fungus.
Thanks a lot for your comments.

Amazing the varieies of fungi there are. These are so white and pure looking. I don't think I have ever seen them that around here. the subtle color inside curves is making me think they are mimicking a flower to attract insects Did they have an odor?

Not really any noticeable odour, but I am reliably informed ( it is at the Botanic Gardens afterall) that they have a luminous glowing effect after dark. Perhaps they attract moths.
I would have loved to see them after dark, but that wasn't possible.

The 2nd shot is unique compositionwise.

I like 1st shot for its smooth texture and I want to cook it, then eat it right away!

Thanks all for comments, much appreciated.
Dave no dogs in that vicinity, but there are a number Kangaroos that visit from thesurrounding bush. I'd better keep a look out for Kangaroos gone mad perhaps!
All the Kangaroos and wallabies are wild, but surprisingly tame. Can get to about 10 feet of some of them. Always when I dont have my camera, of course!
2nd shot makes think of an oyster, or perhaps a fried egg perhaps.
