Tiny & Beautiful: 10 Mushroom Macro Shots
One thing I like about photography is that it teaches me to notice the small beauties of the world. Actually, being beautiful is not even a requirement for being noticed, being interesting is enough. And if you look from the right angle, almost everything can be interesting. Like the forest floor which looks empty at first, and then you notice leaves, small flowers… and mushrooms.
I’ve started noticing mushrooms after I bought a camera that was able to create nice macro shots. I realized there are a lot of different mushrooms. I realized they look interesting, some of them even beautiful. I started to pay attention to the ground, too, while hiking. Why do you need photography for that? You don’t. 🙂
Either way, mushrooms are exciting, and I put my favorite mushroom shots together to showcase it. Convinced?
Finally, here’s a short video I took of a snail eating a mushroom:
Pictures were taken in Hungary, Slovakia, Austria and Romania.
Do you like taking macro shots? What do you usually shoot?
