[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Today, with a great friend of mine from our Fungi Association of Miskolc, we had a small trip on the brookside of Hejő creek. Of course we were looking for fungi, if any of them are available. Fortunately we found a few: beside the specie on this pic we detected Tricholoma myomyces (= T. terreum), Flammulina velutipes, the myxomycota Lycogala epidendron, some perennial bracket fungi like Fomes fomentarius, and also one-year bracket fungi, which we still didn't identify. Not a bad capture in December, when a lot of other lands are covered with snow...

Why I entitled the pic this way? Because the specie on the pic, Tubaria hiemalis, is wearing the strange Hungarian name 'Winter Funnel Rubbish Fungus'. In English: 'Winter Twiglet'. Used to say it's rare in Hungary, but I don't fully agree, because its very closed relative, Tubaria furfuracea, which is growing from spring to autumn, is common here, and the difference between them is only microscopical. Anyway, You can see Tubaria hiemalis on TrekNature by clicking here and here.

Image: taken today - fresh from camera. Little white balance correction, noise reduction, sharpening, framing, signing, re-sizing. I hope You like it.

well done
sincerely wishing you

Hi Laszlo,
a very fine capture of the fungi. the other lichens surrounding it could also be seen. Well detailed and seen surrounding. the blurry grasses in the Bg makes this shot so exciting at the ant's view. nicely composed with great thought.


Hi Baratom Laszlo,
Firsly, thanks a lot for your kind comment/critques on my captures of Taurus frog metamorphosis and on the framing.
Regarding your mushroom shot is excelent with great POV/DOF and you managed the light here so beautiful my friend.
TFS and cheers,

Szia Laci!
Új nap, új nekilódulás! ((:
Azért még nem raktad ki a vitrinbe a régi jó HP-t? ((: Szerintem az a gép hasonló a családi Kodakunkhoz, ha a fények meg minden adottak, akkor nagyon jó képet lehet velük összehozni, de nem is profi totózásra tervezték őket.
Szóval ez pont ilyen eset, kiválóak a fények, és így szép meleg színezésű, remek minőségű és élességű lett a kép. Szeritem az is jó, hogy látszódik a horizont.

Hello László

I love the POV you choose and did not crop
the photo or had the temptation of a more
closer photo, because here with the POV
you choose including the background it is
contributing for the beauty of the photo,
and the warm light is very beautiful, TFS
