Porcelain fungus

This porcelain fungus, Oudemansiella mucida, was growing on the trunk of a beech tree in Surrey, England. The camera is looking almost vertically upwards towards the tree canopy, and the main light source is from behind the fungus. As the cap is translucent this gives a lovely lighting effect. I used a silver reflector card to throw a little light back under the caps.

Olympus OM4Ti, Zuiko 135mm macro lens. Magnification x0.1. Exposure: 10 seconds at f11. Film: Kodachrome 25.
