Sorry, I haven’t had a chance to follow up on this yet. I e-mailed the question to someone who might know more. (They seem to open when wet.)

You have two pair of photos with closed then open ascocarps. What is the trigger for the movement?

But surely this observation proves

that you can do both aesthetic and technical at the same time.

thanks for comments

Having done more with Flickr, I’m not sure how much one should stray from the purely technical on Mushroom Observer, but I really appreciate your generous comments.

Excellent photography!

This is my favorite of your entire collection of images.

I was attracted by the image, and when I clicked to view, I realized, I remember contacting you on Flickr not too long ago, you taught me how to cross section apothecium by hand! Thanks again for that!! ;)

Glad I found you on this site!

Gorgeous! (and neat species)
