November again and the mushrooms are back! In quite predictable fashion, I headed back to arboretum and went looking for photogenic mushrooms. The big nurse log I shot last year was bare, not a ‘shroom to be seen, so it took a little more effort.
Found a single here, a pair there and then I spotted it. Not so much a nurse log, as it was a nurse limb, about four inches in diameter. Half-covered by a dead fern, the small log was abounding with fungi. Just as I was settling in with the tripod, it started to rain.
There’s just something about these mini landscapes that captures my imagination. No slug in this one though.
The details: Fujifilm X-E2, Nikkor 55mm lens, ISO 200, 1.5 seconds @f2.8.
