Oudemansiella mucida #4

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 12 October 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Oudemansiella mucida. (Porcelijnzwam (BE) / Porcelain Fungus (EN) / Beringter Buchscheimrübling (DE) / Mucidule visqueuse (FR)). For more info on the species: see previous images. Again an image from the same group but this group was so well formed and the light was just so perfect that I could not stop making images. Every detail was just so beautiful...

I have really enjoyed the shots of these beautiful mushrooms every capture as brilliant or better than the last

@Christine: Thank you very much, Christine. For a macro-photographer this is one of the finest mushroom-species to find.

Julie Brown from Indianapolis, United States

The softer light and focus is very effective here, Johan. These last three images work so well together. You must print and hang them!

@Julie Brown: This one is almost an abstract I think. The idea of making a "triptique" out of these is great. I'll realy think about that. I'll have to inform about different ways of printing and framing.

Ansie from Paarl, South Africa

I just love this series, have never seen such an amazing Mushroom, do you have a picture of the complete mushroom? It looks a bit like a shell.

@Ansie: Thanks, Ansie. The complete mushroom was the first of this serie - so maybe you just look back a few images :-) I'm realy glad you like the series.

Marilla from Turku, Finland

This deserves also 5 stars! That trancslucent light is very beautiful.

@Marilla: It is the best way to get images from this mushroom but is not always possible to get underneath the cap. Thanks for the appreciation, Marilla.

Marie from FRESNES, France

superbe, j'aime beaucoup !!!

@Marie: I'm very glad you do, Marie. I think this one is the best of the "Oudemansiella"-series. It is nearly an abstract I think. Thank you very much for commenting again.

Dutçh from Chicagoland, United States

I thought yesterday's image was spectacular but you are right this one is even better, nicely done, a 5!

@Dutçh: Thanks for the 5, Kristen. I think I'm evolving more to the abstract-macro-fungi-images - think I like them more.

daniela scharnowski from Berlin, Germany

Why do I think of bedrooms here? Lovely and soft - very intruiging!!

@daniela scharnowski: Maybe because you are still sleepy ? :-DDD But I agree - this reminds of silk-sheets ...

Laurent from near Lyon, France
