No idea what it is but it was found in a pine forest above 6000 feet.



Looks like it might be a flower of some kind. Amazing the things you find on the forest floor. ;)

First one looks like some kind of cousin to the Elven Cup, although not identical. Beautiful nevertheless. Not sure what the second ones are, but its an excellent shot regardless!

Thanks for the compliments! I'm nowhere close to a pro, but my little G12 holds its own pretty well for a point-and-shoot (at least for stationary subjects :) ).

Not to everyone's taste with so narrow DoF, but it was also a bit of an experiment with the 135 f/2 wide open with extension tubes, close to 1:1.

Name: Wood Sorrel
Edible: I think so
Location: Aigas Field Centre, Scotland
Equipment: Canon 5D MkII + EF 135mm f/2 with 68mm extension tubes

And some more conventional.

Name: Tylopilus felleus
Edible: Yes (if my ID is correct :P)
Location: Quantock Hills, Somerset, England
Equipment: Canon 5D MkII + EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro

Name: Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria)
Edible: No
Location: Quantock Hills, Somerset, England
Equipment: Canon 5D MkII + EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro

I'll have to dig out a couple I've done using the 100mm macro (non-L) with extension tubes, near to twice life size.

Well, I don't know what it is, but it is interesting to look at. It was overcast today, so I will try to go back tomorrow when the sun is supposed to be back. The spider off on the center right is a good 2" across.
It looks like one of the bracket fungi, no idea which one though. Mst of them are associated with specific tree species, so that will help to identify it.

One names is Snow Plant. Its a fungus.  Very common in the Sierras in June.

Lovely picture Jon.

I'm going to be picky: if it's not an Agaricus of some kind then it's not a mushroom. Difficult to tell from the picture but it may be Gymnopilus spectabilis

I like it how the mushroom is growing out of the bottom of the wood :-)
