Chicken (of the woods)
6

We discovered a humungus fungus amungus the other day out mountain biking our local trails.

View with the fp and 45mm lens

Behold : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laetiporus

I had the fp and fun 45mm lens and took some shots:

Others were with me

Hooman included for scale. I think I heard him say "Make love to the lens, baby!"

The next day I biked up to it with a backpack of lens and various bodies and a tripod:

Someone had harvested about 1/3 of our model.

Then, I broke out the 105mm Macro and SD1m. I really like the foveon sensor when I want every pixel to be, just so.

Cropped with Affinity.

I did not harvest any of this Chicken as I am unfamiliar with this this species. I do harvest chanterelles when they appear. Most delicious.

I think I saw this one starting to grow when I went by a couple of weeks ago. The orange color was so intense I thought it was a spray paint marking for logging. It appears it was not.

Look where you want to go. Don't look where you don't want to go.
