Thanks pg_harvey,

This photo was taken with a Cannon PowerShot SX-100 IS. It has a larger lense than your typical pocket digital camera, but it’s not an SLR. I moved the violet into the shot to bring out the orange color of the slime mold. The composition is mostly God’s work though :)

Gorgeous photos, Dan! Really shows the difference between an SLR and a pocket digital. And a lovely composition, too.
