It is so nice when you can get the sun to cooperate as you had for these shots. It just isn't like that in Oregon where I am... sigh!

You have to get into "Mushroom" photography. As a "mycophagist" (someone who studies mushrooms for the purpose of eating them). I can assure you the rewards are immense!

And some of them grow so fast, why it almost qualifies as an action shot...

Actually, I do find mushrooms, lichens, and fungi to be interesting targets for photography. I'll have to try that! Thanks for suggestion, Dave... :roll:

Thanks to all. The background is actually my yard. I hang my 'perchless' feeder on a deck hook and I stand on the deck... just a few feet away (maybe 5') and I wait. I have a very large back yard and it slopes upward a bit in the back... therefore the camera is actually pointed slightly downward which gets the distant yard as a background.

Those shots are simply incredible. How in the world do you get them tack sharp? I've been trying for years without attaining the quality of yours. What's your secret? Wonderful work. Woody
