Trametes versicolor.

I already posted some days ago another Trametes with a plant growing through and some info about it HERE (I am not 100% sure but it seems like).

I am always surprised with the shapes that this mushrooms get when they find an something in their way when growing, and here is another example.

See a detail in the WORKSHOP , I find it fascinating.

Hope you like too!

Felipe. you sure find them. This one is amazing. Good post.

Excellent shot once again Felipe! The "King" of fungi has produced another very fine image. I think fungi are a subject well suited for macro. You have captured the beauty of their intricate design famously! Well done. Again..

Otra leccion del reino que Adam resiste entender que existe...
Gran presentacion... no es tan llamativa como otras anteriores, pero estas 2 imágenes son muy instructivas para conocer más de estos ejemplares.

Very interesting Felipe. It always finds a way!

Very good work and note, thanks for posting.

Felipe, this is such a nice composition. The wavy lines make it. Well done.

Thank you Felipe for dedication and very nice words! I'll do my best to make better pictures, especially of fungi :-)

Every of your pictures amazes me. I didn't knew much about fungi and didn't interested this subject very much. But your photos changed my mind! Kingdom of fungi is one of most beautiful and underestimated. Every fungus tells us its own story and thanks to you Felipe we can hear and see it!

Another immaculate conception Felipe. I noticed the fine little teeth on the underside of the fungi and it has me wondering about the ID.The top looks a bit like Trametes versicolour, but I have some reservation.I'll have to get Clive to take a look at this one.

You too! My friend! Whenever I see a mushroom now, I think of you. And, I consider if it is possible to make an excellent photo of the hongo, but it is difficult to do as excellent a job as you consistently produce. Your talent is amazing!
I look forward to viewing more of your work throughout 2006! May you have a Very Happy New Year and a wonderful 2006!
Best Regards,
ps This "Crossroads" is another amazing masterpiece by my friend: Felipe! Who has never ceased to amaze me by his creative photos. Many thanks!

Hi Felipe. I love that mushroom shot. Very lovely, but I would suggest the following: Your composition is very centered, and that makes the swerves and curves of the mushroom to be underappreciated. I would strongly suggest cropping it further and leaving only the shape of the mushroom with the stick through it. In your workshop, when you show the detail, you almost get it nicely, but I would've gone for a horizontal crop.

That's my suggestion. THe Trametes is superb though. Good shot.
