Cracking specimen Mand, wish I could find one, must get my macro head on after this set of nights Smile

Same as I told Chris on his upload yesterday, would have benefitted with some selective gardening removing any extraneous items from the shot that tend to pull the eye away from the main focus of the shot, only takes a couple of minutes on the ground so to speak but improves the shot no end imho, all a learning curve this macro lark and I know you'll soon have it cracked Smile

cheers Chris. Comments gratefully received. I think I'm banned from 'gardening' as I tend to be a bit of a clumsy madam and end up squishing them. haha..
Thanks Scott, I tried a few different crops but settled with the cone in the frame in the end.

Fine detail & colour on your shroom Amanda,I must agree with Chris though,a bit of selective 'gardening' would have improved the composition of this no end.
Some of those plastic tweezers that you find in children's 'Doctor's' sets would work well,nice & light to avoid the heavy-handedness Wink

Cheers Harsh. Janet, thanks for the comments. Must acquire some of those tweezers which sound just like the ones we have in our dressing packs at work Grin.

Another beauty, Mands, stunning clarity and detail. Thanks for the tip about using something to lay on the ground on, definitely a good idea! Wink
