Bitter Oyster - Panellus stipticus

This is also known as the astringent panus, the luminescent panellus, or the stiptic fungus. It is a species of fungus in the Mycenaceae family. A common and widely distributed species that is found in Asia, Australasia, Europe, and North America, where it grows in groups or dense overlapping clusters on logs, stumps, and trunks of deciduous trees, especially beech, oak, and birch.

During the development of the fruit bodies, the mushrooms start out as tiny white knobs, which, over a period of one to three months, develop into fan- or kidney-shaped caps that measure up to 3 cm (1.2 in) broad. The caps are orange-yellow to brownish, and attached to the decaying wood by short stubby stalks that are connected off-center or on the side of the caps. (Another view in the WORKSHOP!)

The Swedish name is ‘Epĺlettsvamp’.

Very pretty sight Ulla, that row of mushrooms among green land mosses. They also do look like a row of oysters! THanks for sharing this fine image my friend.

Hi Ulla.
Another beautiful fungus delivered to TN from you. It is really fascinating to see different kind of fungi from the world over.
The capture against the green fern is fabulous and the perspective is just pleasing in the frame.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend shooting.
Regards - Jusni

Good morning Ulla,

The details and colors of the bitter oystee nushrooms are well captured. Your aperture is well chosen to keep all in focus too. Great POV! I also captured one Oyster mushroom on the chesnut tree in Richmond but i could not find its exact id yet!

Bonjour Ulla,
Amazing how many different species of fungis we can see on this site...very often they have too a very special common name, like this one.
Nicely taken in a bed of moss which gives the beautiful and natural contrast to the fungis. Natural and fine shot.
Have a nice Sunday you and Ivan

Amazing DOF using the G9..The color, light, and details look great Ulla.
I especially like the contrasting green moss that sets em' off.
I enjoyed the WS showing this fungi in its later stage, thanx :)
Well done!

A super A plus for composition. You sure were feeling spot on when you took this one Ulla. A fine work to behold. Have a blessed first Sunday in Advent,

Bonjour Ulla,
Agréable publication valorisant bien les sujets sous une bonne lumičre et un excellent angle de prise de vue.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Ulla,
very lovely composition with nice mosses as its natural surroundings and background. You have shown the fungi in great detail and line of them to give additional excitement.
Details are splendid.


Precioso trabajo Ulla.
Bien captadas las texturas y los colores. Buenos contrastes y disposición de los hongos entre el musgo.

Llevo varias semanas publicando poco... más adelante a ver si me animo :-)

Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Hola Ulla

Preciosa imagen de estos hongos y la hierba a su alrededor. contrastes y nitidez perfectas. Un buen POV.

Un saludo de Antonio

Hello Ulla,
Fungis are also caught by you and your G9! ... Congratulations! beautiful photo! ... With excellent DOF and color temperature very eloquent!

Hello Ulla
what a nice capture of beautiful Bitter Oyster on beautiful green mosses. I like very much your workshop post. sharp details, light using, exposure and color balance great. coloration splendid. nicely captured from great POV/DOF.
thanks for sharing two beautiful shot with good informative notes. best regards

Hi Ulla,

This is a very difficult species to photograph well. You almost completely solved the problem, I mean sharpness in the focal area is great and colors are nice. A pity that "focused area" wasn't placed on the closest square centimeters (to your position), because the nearer parts of the bunch became a bit soft and oof. However, this is the only, by my opinion mistake on the whole image, so it deserves my dark green smiley yet. Tfs, and build the theme further.

I wish you & your loved ones a healthy and prosperous new year, friendly regards, László
