[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Probably this isn't the most interesting fungal species I ever tried to show you off, but was very interesting to me how the young fruit-bodies crack the bark... Most of them already managed to do so, while some others are still trying...

ID: Nectria cinnabarina (Tode) Fr. Common English name: Coral Spot. I only found one image of it on TrekNature, but it's an excellent photo and worth checking out.

Photo: done with using my Raynox macro converter lens. Manual exposure mode. PP: moderate cropping, white balance correction, saturation increased a little, simple frame, after re-sizing noise reduction and selective sharpening. In the workshop you can see a heavily cropped version of this same photograph.

Thanx for looking.

Thanks Laszlo
Great bg, well composed

Hi Laszló my friend,
How are you my friend, it's nice to hear from you again. Firstly thank you for your comments on my photo of the giraffe.
As Lou I also thought it was some kind of disease on the trees but it takes someone like you, an expert on fungi to enlighten us. I think it is excellent and very interesting and tfs.
Have a great week my friend.
Kind Regards

Hello Laszlo.
I was thinking in the same line as Luciano and what a strange looking specimen you have shown us here. Nice details and well written note as always.
Thanks and have a great week ahead.

Szia Laci!
Remek felvétel erről az érdekes gomba fajról, szép színek, hasznos bemutató!
Szia, Jóska

Hello Laszlo,
interesting picture of these young mushrooms breaking through the bark. I like the good use of your Raynox macro converter lens to take it with fine sharpness and very detailed. I also like the natural colours and thanks for your link to the fully grown Coral Spot.
Best wishes,

Ciao Lazlo. So interesting this strange specie. Beautiful natural colours and very good light's management.


Hello László

I love much this one than the cropped one of the WS,
excellent macro with great focus sharpness and details, TFS

Hi Laszlo.
I did not know at all that this is fungi. Very interesting shot which gives new knowledge. Its quality is great. I also have (but not use) and like Raynox converter. It is superb. BG is wonderful and nicely blurred and underlines the details of the twig. Kind regards and TFS.
P.S. Your words are very pleasant but I think you exaggerate my abilities (a little :)).

Hello Laszlo,
Actually this is very interesting to me, as I would have never of guessed that this was a type of fungi if I would have spotted it in the field. Shown very well in wonderful detail and natural coloration. I also like the WS, as it shows it off close-up, but I can see why you chose this version as your main post. Well done!!
Glad you mentioned the image that Felipe posted a few years ago, as it is an excellent example.

Laszlo, first of all, I wish to thank you for your very frank and candid observations on my recent picture of a Long-legged Fly. As I have told you earlier, we are here to share images and not to earn any personal gains. If we like a picture, we say so and if we don't, we say that too. I don't know you personally, so I too have no issues with you as a person. As for your work that you display here, I intend to give you my frank opinion on it.
For example, what you show in your picture today has zero aesthetic value for me. For me, it is a pictorial document in which you have tried to exhibit some fungal growth under the bark of a tree. You inform us that it is called 'Coral Spot', so I go by your research and accept it as scietifically true.
So I will give you credit on that count only.

Hello László,
A fine simple capture of a Coral-spot fungus. You used the low lighting to achieve fine clarity and natural colours against a good blurred BG, thankfully with out the use of flash. Nice to see the WS too.
Thanks and enjoy your Sunday,

Hello Laszlo,
I think it is quite valid to upload an image here for its educational, scientific or even curiosity value. After all, we learn about nature through photography, and not the other way around. Although we are all keen photographers, I think we should try and make a contribution with knowledge of nature, as you do here, when we can. I, for example, did not know that fungi could make a rather severe attack on their host instead of just existing superficially. Definitely worth my two points.

Hello MF Laszlo,
quite interesting and amazing to see this fungi specie. I dont think I have witness anything like this.
I grew in a good distance among themselves. Quite fascinating to see the phenomena which I am ignorant of.


very interesting and different scene, I like the great performance!
regards Laszlo

Hello Laszlo-I thought its a branch with thorn!Thanks for such Useful NOTE about this interesting Fungi.Even watch the link of another picture here in TN.Like your WS version where it more closer.Regards and have a nice time-Srikumar
