Great details and a fabulous POV. You must spend your whole like lying on your stomach. Lovely colours. I'm certainly starting to see the attraction with fungi
The details are clear and sharp.
Good colours, lighting and exposure. DOF is spot on and the POV is good.
Well composed and nicely framed.
Thanks for posting, have a great weekend.

Ultra nítida foto con un gradiente de color de fondo precioso. El color de la seta queda perfecto contrastando con el color marrón del fondo. Gran luz suave y cálida.

Common fungus but very weird at closer look :-) Details are excellent, same as light. Good composition with main subject's brothers on BG. It looks like alien structure from sf movie :-)
