Our pro’s ver­dict…

After a pro­longed dry spell, rain be­fore our field trip trig­gered the ap­pear­ance of some fungi. Ida spot­ted this poly­pore growing be­side a mossy-coated birch tree trunk, which pro­vided a solid frame as well as ad­di­tional colour. Un­like ed­i­ble mush­rooms that have gills be­neath the cap, this fun­gus has pores, and a small re­flec­tor helped to de­flect light onto them. The fallen birch leaves add an au­tum­nal el­e­ment, and also pro­vide a use­ful nat­u­ral scale. Ida has achieved good bokeh be­hind the fun­gus, which makes it pop from the back­ground, from where dis­tract­ing green bracken stems were ‘gar­dened’ out of view. It’s a lovely shot!
