This is a very large mushroom with an anomaly on it's underside. I shot it upside down on a table under overcast skies. I really pushed the f-stop to get the DOF I wanted to get it to look like formations I've seen in the desert. Hey! The title is "MACRO"!

Focal length: 100 mm
Shutter speed: 1/30 sec
Aperture: F45
ISO: 640
Notes: Very close macro shot. Tripod. Mushroom was supported with blocks so I could shoot the anomaly. I like shooting mushrooms in diffuse light. I would have used a diffusion tent and lights, but I just moved to this property and the lights were packed.
