Physarum nutans

This are very small subjects.
The one in the midle is taken getting to the limit the 60mm macro, and with a 100% crop (no resize).

We already have a nice collection of slime moulds in TN.
Slime moulds are strange creatures, there are not many visible subjects that do not belong to Animal, Vegetal, Lichen ot Fungi kindoms, and this one of them.

If you find them interesting and want to understand better this creature, you can visit Clive´s [fungiman] WEB PAGE, he has a very nice gallery and explanation about them.

Hope you like!

Hello Felipe and Christina,
Very nice presentation of these tiny slime moulds which I assume grow both on bark and on leaves. Sharp details and nice colours. Very interesting and thanks for the hint about Clive's web page!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hola Felipe y Cristina,
Interesante macro de estas minúsculas criaturas que requieren la sabiduría del Hombre de los Hongos para su comprensión. Desde luego no para su visión, pues con tu foto todo está bien documentado. Excelente exposición, detalles y montaje.
Abrazo, José M.

Hello Felipe and Cristina,
This is a very fine collage presenting this small fungus in a well composed arrangement of shots. Each shot is sharp and detailed and the whole presentation gives us an excellent idea of the appearance and substrate of this fungus.
Well done and TFS!
Best wishes, Ivan

Hello Felipe what a love collage nice show of different well composed pics that show the surroundings. well done tfs rgds Necip.

Hello Felipe and Christina!
This presentation is really impressive! So small objects photographed with so great result! :) As I see the "colony" occurs on the leaf's surface.
I really like the way you presented this mushroom species - combination of 4 pictures to show it from different points of view. Very good details, DOF and saturation.
TFS and all the best,

Cada dia você nos presenteia com uma imagem melhor que a anterior. Parabéns.


Hi Felipe and Cristina
What an interesting presentation!
You've done very good work - taking picture of so small objects is really difficult. I like especially the picture in lower left but all of them have nice colours and very good depth of field.
And your note is also very interesting.

Hola Felipe y Cristina,
Me sorprende la cantidad de Mixos que aportas a tu galería, con lo difícil que es encontrarlos y determinarlos. La calidad en las tomas es excelente y muy detallada, mi más sincera enhorabuena. Un cordial saludo

Hello Felipe and Cristina, for being so small (2 mm) you have managed these macro shots perfectly. Excellent captures, and very interesting to see.
Well done and TFS

Vous offrez un très bel assemblage très cohérent et surtout très instructif, sur ces étragnes organismes. La qualité de vos macro leur rend honneur.

Otra más... la belleza e ínfimo tamaño de estos ejemplares tan bien captados Felipe son dignos de tu galería con otra composición donde nos muestras de todas las formas posibles a esta especie.
La imagen de arriba a la izquierda tiene una calidad y claridad estupenda... y el bonus de ver en una misma escena como utilizas ambas cámaras con la misma destreza de siempre.
Saludos amigos... Ricardo
