Tiny Mushrooms in Macro Photography

Two weeks ago my wife and I went on one last mushroom hunt. The mushroom buyers had closed their shops. So our focus was on eating them ourselves. We were hoping to find a few more chanterelles, since they are so healthy and taste so good. Alas, there was not even one chanterelle we could find. Instead I discovered these tiny beauties. Enjoy!

The spectacular place where we found the mushrooms

    Spectacular place indeed! They are so pretty these little mushrooms. Cantarelles are really tasty, especially when picked fresh.

      My wife and I like the chantrelles too. When we have picked too many, we dry them so we can enjoy in our meals for a long time.

        That’s a good way to keep them and keep the flavour. We will never find too many, so we don’t have the problem here, too many people pick them … 😉

        You may know that squirrels dry mushrooms, too. They store them in little ‘pantries’ to serve as winter rations.

      Indeed, I also find colourful mushrooms very appealing. Thanks for the appreciative comment, Robert!

      The mushrooms I photographed for this post are actually quite small. Most people would not even notice them in the woods. Thank you for your comment, Amy!

    Looks like there are so many variants of mushroom to pick. Great pictures, as always.

    The yellow and white ones are especially charming. The mushrooms we see around here range from brown to beige to white — not nearly so attractive!

      These are very tiny mushrooms often overlooked by the casual observer. Photography had brought me closer to nature including the little mushrooms.

    I especially like the pink translucence of the mushroom in the final picture.
