With apothecia

I only posted these because it’s the first time I managed to get apothecia, although they ended up being out of focus here.

White balance

Definitely works best to do it yourself. I think the problem we have on this website is that we’re so close to our subject. The camera doesn’t get to see a broad sampling of the landscape. If you point at something that is pure orange, how can it possibly figure out what the overall color temperature is? Here, all it can see is brown and green. That’s my theory, at least.

C. coniocraea or kin, again, right? Squamules don’t look big and conspicuous enough to be coniocraea, though. Didn’t you post something just like this recently? Either coniocraea just looks different from what I’m used to in your area, or you’ve got another common species I’m not familiar with.

Colors off

The upper photo had white balance set to manual, and I guess the wrong setting was used. The more I tinker with my camera, the more I’m convinced I have to let it do the job, rather than try to set it myself, just to see skewed results like in this photo.
