Hi Laszlo.It seems like an open oyster with transmitted light from a pearl hidden in the shadow below.Spectacular backlight and great capture of this majestic specie,no comment about the quality always perfect.Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Hi Laszlo ,

great capture of the Judas Ear.

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Laszlo,
I love this interesting fungus. I like the light coming from behind.
No doubt a stunning quality of this composition.

Hello Laszlo,
Beautiful fungi this Judas ear. Very attractive structure. Nice color mainly inside. Like the way you have placed it.
Thanks for sharing,

Hehe.. right Laszlo! Hot chocolate, indeed. But isn't it smoothie time? Just kidding! Jokes apart, lovely species and excellent pov! I really wanted to see that fungus from down! :O It shows the habitat also.. and gives me an idea of the wood.
Is this an European species only, or I can find one here in North America? Your converter lens did good.. TFS.

Bonjour Laszlo,
C'est superbe ; bien composé dans une lumière bien maitrisée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
