Cute little slime mold
Lens: SMC Pentax-D FA 100mm F2.8 Macro Camera: Pentax K5 Photo Location: Malcolm Island, BC ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/3s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: SointulArt, 07-27-2016, 10:01 PM

Found this little slime mold (10 mm across) right down by the beach on a fallen and decaying tree branch, which was also encrusted with many varieties of lichen. Malcolm Island, BC on the north shore bordering the Queen Charlotte Strait. Possibly a Stemonitis species. This is a stack of 14 images processed in Lightroom 4 and Helicon Focus.

It looks like a dessert though even if it was actually edible I don't think 'slime mold' would help it sell.

A well executed macro of an interesting subject. Nice work Darryl.

Very good shot. Slime molds are interesting in that they can have as many as 500 difference sexes. I am struggling to understand exactly what that means, but I would do some checking before I called one "cute".

I have trouble using "cute" and "mold" in the same sentence
