I love, love, LOVE this photo of the underside of fungus. Perfect depth of field and it's SO dramatic in black and white. I'm sure I'll be participating in this challenge. I'll let you know when I've posted.

These are fantastic shots Marie! Beautifully focussed and I love the angle that you used in both! Jeannette xx

It is an art form to reveil such beauty. The bee you have in your photo is gathering pollen, like a good bee does. The large bee's I have at my home I call 'boring bee's', because they bore into any exposed wood they can find and eventually destroy some of my building. The underside of the fungus or mushroom has great texture, and the grouping is elegant. mark

Marie, I love both images. I know how hard that first one was to capture and love it more because of it...but I especially love photos of mushrooms, so the second one is my choice for winner. :)

I really love the mushrooms! The details we forget about and make us smile and think about looking at them from that angle next time.

I hope that this does not appear two times..my first post vanished....

I really like the mushrooms! I love images of things that make us stop for a second and rethink the way we look at the things around us.
