This mushroom was very tiny. I had to use the macro end of my lens and get almost on my belly for this shot.

I found this little fungi in a county park not too far from my house. I like the texture of the cap. It seems most tiny mushrooms are smooth-capped and more fragile looking.

Something about the slant and shape of this mushroom makes me imagine it marching off to gnome battle. Or maybe it’s just getting ready for a gnome New Year’s party – waiting for its mate in the background to hurry up and finish getting ready so they can get going. Ha! Hard to say for sure.

Imagine. Dream. Create.

  1. I love the detail and color in this shot. I agree, the position of the mushroom brings to mind fairy tales and thoughts of gnomes and sprites. The DoF is perfect for the shot and I like the detail in the soil around the mushroom. It adds to the story the image tells.
