Magic Mushroom

Mushroom 190406
I snapped this picture while walking my dog this morning. I’d decided to talk a shortcut and walked under the trees. Somehow, I noticed this fungi beneath my feet. It was about 6 to 8 cm in height. I had my digital camera with me and decided to take a macro shot… well, as macro as I could make it.

The shot turned out quite nice, in terms of composition and focus, by my amateur standards after considering that my dog was tugging at the leash and I couldn’t really aim the camera properly. I had no tripod so I placed my left index finger on the ground to support the camera, roughly aimed the lens and peered at the viewing screen (couldn’t quite see it clearly as the camera was slanted towards the mushroom) and took the shot.
