Recapping mushrooms

It is so easy to think that macro photography is all about flowers and insects. However, there is another type of subject that I love to photograph with my macro lens, but I don’t get to do it very often.

Yes, that would be mushrooms.

Hunting for mushrooms

They are not something I can photograph in my garden because they rarely grow there.

I would like to say that they mainly grow in rainforests, but I have found that they can grow in very unusual places as well.

I’m not going to talk long today, but I have been thinking about mushrooms a lot. I mean that could be because we can’t get them in the supermarket much at the moment, like a lot of produce. Maybe it is because I am at home and don’t know when I will be able to photograph them again. Of course, summer is not a good time, but perhaps later in the year, I will be able to do them again.

A trip to a rainforest could be perfect. It is so nice to look into the detail of the rainforest to see what you can find.

So today I have been hunting through my archives and found a heap of mushrooms that I took with my macro lens back in 2015 on a trip to Marysville.

I hope you enjoy seeing them.

Take care everyone and let’s talk in the comments.

    1. That is always good to hear, thank you. I like where you mind goes with images of mushrooms, very nice. I always think of the Faraway Tree.

  1. A wonderful array of different sorts. I don’t think we get as many different ones but here in the UK, I can find quite a few on Southampton Common. Last Autumn I kept meaning to take my camera with me to photograph them but never got around to it.

    1. Thank you RJ, it is amazing how many you can find in one trip. I had no idea there were so many, do you have rainforests in the UK? Maybe you will have to start taking them with your phone. That can be fun too.
