I saw this little jewel coming up in my yard this afternoon, and I thought: "How appropriate!" So this is my frugal attempt as a tribute to Martin E. Morris’
phenomenal fungal photography. I could never hope to merge mushroom-to-media like Martin!
Martin, thank you for all of your inspiration!
And if I do say so myself, it ROCKS in 'Lightbox!'

    Fungi are one of my favorite objects to photograph. You have done an amazing job with this shot, Ron. I love the lighting on the side of the shroom. Lovely warm leaves with the one green stem across the top really sets this photo above most!!! Great job!

    One of the best and certainly the most natural image of a mushroom I have ever seen Ron.The point of focus and depth of field are precisely where they should be.Very,very nice in lightbox,this is a perfect example of how a mushroom should be shot.Outstanding imagery that is much better than I have achieved.Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the tribute!!!

    I love shroom shots! This one is quite the keeper and a depth of field that I often miss. Nice lighting.
