Mushroom Forest

This is one of my personal favorites of all my macro shots.  These tiny mushrooms were such a lucky find.  When I realized how great the shots turned out I wanted to go back and try out some other camera settings.  But by the time I returned the following day all of the mushrooms had been eaten.   Location: Las Brisas Nature Reserve, near Turrialba, Costa Rica, July 2011.

I entered this photo in the “Art of Nature” photo contest at PhoozL.

Photo caption: From an insect’s viewpoint these mushrooms tower above creating a mystical landscape.
