A detailed image of the same moss species as yesterdag (Aulacomnium androgynum - "Drumsticks" - Gewoon knopjesmos). In this picture you can see an individual mossplant with the gemmae forming on top of the stalk. Don't be mislead by the dimentions ... This moss is only max. 1 cm tall. The picture is taken with 150 mm macro at about 1/1 + 2x extender + 1.4 extender (and a good stable tripod- only natural light) giving a magnification about 2.8/1 ! (I was just experimenting how far i could go ...) (The image is not cropped)
