Thank you for your kind words, Ju and Carol - really appreciated Smile


Jim, my apologies - I thought that was an exclamation rather than a question...!!! It's one of the advantages of shooting with a micro four thirds sensor, a little more depth of field... I spend a lot of time scouting for the subject, then take a series of images with different apertures until happy I have covered the DoF I want on the subject and have the required bokeh in the background. Here the DoF doesn't quite go to the back of the main cap, but it's enough that I'm pleased with the effect. I'm also very careful to line the plane of the sensor as near to the plane of the fruiting bodies too, which also helps with the overall DoF.

I trust this helps answer your question - please get back to me if you have any further queries... all the best, Mike
