MACRO MONDAY'S -- Ernesto's Mushrooms


Blogger micki said...

Camera - Konica Minolta 70
Film - Fuji HQ ISO 100
Shutter Speed - 1 second
Aperture Setting - f-132 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 105mm macro/portrait lens
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer

It is hoped that you would respect my ownership of the images posted here on Shutterbug Underexposed, despite the ease with which you could copy my photos. If you would like a true photographic print of any of my images, please contact me at and I will be happy to provide you with one.

Yesterday’s Take a Guess shot was of a Duplo block…one of those giant Leggo building blocks that are for toddlers to work with. They are quickly being replaced with the normal Leggos in our house, as my four year old is becoming quite the Leggo master. I know what I need to buy more of this month.

Totally rained out last night, but here’s to a good week ahead! The rain is gone, the sun is out, and as soon as that cold wind dies down, we’ll be good to go. Hope you’re all enjoying the season.

I could have easily fit this growth of little mushrooms in the palm of my hand. They are among my favorite variety. Again, I believe this was from right after Ernesto blew through, and the yard was a fairyland of mushroom growth. I caught this bunch in a bit of sunshine that broke through the clouds for a brief moment.

I almost got specific with yesterday's ID and said 'Duplo', but I couldn't remember if the Duplo blocks have hollow pegs...

This is quite the close-knit 'shroom family here!

I’m glad you mentioned the scale of these little beauties. Mushrooms always look to be thoroughly enjoying themselves and, as here, all in a happy huddle.
