Observation 34910: Sarcoscypha (Fr.) Boud.

When: 2010-03-18

Collection location: Wayne National Forest, Athens Co., Ohio, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dan Molter (shroomydan)

No specimen available

I had a 2:00 PM appointment to have an axle replaced on the shroomymobile, so I figured I’d take a little hike while they were working on my car. This is what I love about Athens, no place in town is more than a 15 minute walk from big public woods :)

I packed some food, water, my tripod, fresh batteries, knee pads. I was all set, except that I left my camera sitting on the table in a rush to make the two o’clock appointment. I didn’t even realize the camera was missing until I found these glorious scarlet cups, probably the biggest prettiest cluster I’ve ever seen. It was very strange being in the woods without a camera.

Anyway, no in situ shots, but look forward some microscopy.

This looks like an excellent way to control color and white balance as well.

Ever heard of these? http://www.adorama.com/GHMCCC.html I’d get one if they made them about 25% of this size for the really small stuff.

great art shot, Dan!

no crime in bringing them home alive for their portraits…some of my favorite shots of California condors were taken in a studio!
