This is Mr Carl Zeiss Flektogon in action. Fancy (and long) name for such a little fella. But he knows what he is doing, and doing it well.
Here he is in action in different conditions.
It is not a macro lens, but with the right conditions you can get some nice bubbly bokeh and great colours!
The park the mushrooms were shot at has quite a lot of trees and some parts are pretty shady. No bubbles there - but we do have some nice soft background instead.
All the tiny mushrooms were hiding well between some grasses and bits of tree debris. Hard to spot, when you finally do it's like a Christmas present!
And at this point - the smaller the better :)
Last buy not least one of my all time favorites - the Inc Caps.
They are much taller and easier to spot (as long as they do not hide inside tall grass). They look fancy with their pure white legs and lazy hats looking down at all the little, plain ones.
Like delicate, short-lived fairies.
And one that just started to grow right near the wooden stairs that go down from the hill to the carpark. Not the best spot. I saw others growing there too and now they look like spots on the wood.
