Cep Family

By chase
Boletus edulis
One of the most edible 'shrooms, found in woodland of all types, particularly with Beeches and Oaks, growing in small groups.

A stacked image (12 frames) as I just couldn't get the dof I wanted in order to isolate them from the bg.

Lit by available daylight which was pretty grim, and it was raining as you can see from the water drops on the caps.
I used a small piece of gold card as a reflector to push as much light as possible onto the stems.

I just liked the way these 3 seemed to be a family Smile
Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Lovely image Janet. I've never tried focus stacking, it seems time and patience consuming. You've achieved an excellent result here.

Nope, no ad Smile I do like that sequence, the little one dancing about makes me smile.

Not really once you get the hang of things, it's getting the appropriately focused frames in the first place, Photoshop does a fair job of stacking them but there are other programs that are probably better.
Thanks all.

Dad holding a tired mom up while baby clings to mom. Such sweet little mushrooms.

Super image Janet. Lovely composition, the stacking is perfect and the background suitably smooth.
