Orange fungi macro

The beauty of macro photography is it opens up a whole new world of perspective to be photographed. The fine detail over overlooked can generate mini wonderlands.

Orange fungus macro rainforest growth

Micro orange fungus trees

This scene was of some orange fungi from a recent weekend at Oreily’s rainforest retreat.
Favolaschia calocera, commonly known as the orange pore fungus, is a species of fungus in the Mycenaceae family. found in Madagascar, New Zealand, Italy and Australia. This macro view of a small group of fungi was a bit of a challenge. Trying to come up with a composition in macro is much different than landscapes. 🙂 I tried to use the green mossy background to create some contrast to the vibrant orange fungi.

Enjoy.
