The german name of Auricularia auricula-judae is "Ear of Judas".
I had to train with my FZ5 again, after a long long time:

[/align]


It can be eaten (in this case by snails)



The back of the ear



The whole thing



Habitat



A different look into the ear (Sanyo xacti)



One day I will eat them - it is used in the chinese kitchen

I hope you like the "fruits" of my sunday excursion.

Sven

Equipment:

FZ5, Minolta achromat '1 and #2, Linhof tripod, macro rail, available light

Interesting mushroom and nice shots. I would have trouble eating this now that I have seen what it looks like in it's natural habitat.

Beutifully captured...We would almost never see mushrooms that late in Spring/early in summer.

thanks,

...well, I will not eat the animal, Steve!

Available light is just enough for me, Mark.

Rafinmelb, there are more mushrooms around here, but the brown snails eat all of them.
These mushrooms "climb" up the trees to get rid of them.

Vaiboy, maybe these ones are not ears , but wings?
I will have to search for the tree again..

Cheers

Sven

There is nothing to do, no flash can compare natural light.
I m sure your tripod+macro rail can become unconfortable when having to shoot moving subjects, but with mushrooms and plants it is great.

I hope you won't abandon this Forum (and FZ5) for the Sanyo...
