Another shot from the same location as my upoad from a few days ago, a different type of fungi however.

I thought the inclusion of an almost perfect specimen and a more tatty individual worked well, and I was pleased when I processed the image that the dew drop showed up so well.

Thanks for looking.

Wow the clarity is amazing...I know you said you edited this but what filter did you use? I just received my polarizer filters for both my lenses and hoping that I can get great saturation and contrast rather than having to edit them everytime...your shot is fantastic!!

Thanks all.

Kellie, just had a uv filter attached to my macro lens for this shot, taken at settings of ISO 200 f7.1 shutterspeed 1/8s.
Processed in capture one LE, then a few adjustments in photoshop.

Cheryl, truth be known I would have liked to have two perfect specimen's, but begger's can't be chooser's I suppose!!

This is a real gem. The moss, droplet and dark areas of one cap are my favourite elements.

Pleased to be the 30th.
