World of Small forest

Copse-on-a-fence-post in the World of Small.

 

It struck me that these look like scale models for Frank's Balancing Rocks in Southern USA.

an amazing image Ray... you had to hurry to get this shot in before the one on the left toppled over....petersmile
Ray: It does look a little precarious, Peter, just like some of Frank's amazing rocks.
Oh they do, Ray!!! Isn't this fantastic! You have these tiny little "mushrooms", and the one's in Frank's image were giant! Wonderful image!
Ray: Nature is not supposed to make prototypes, Elizabeth...

They are amazing tiny little things aren't they Ray? Great capture!
Ray: Fungus World is an amazing place, Richard.

These look like coconut trees on the beach. Now I have to find Frank's almost tipping-over trees. I love the small world here.wonderful DOF.
Ray: We have coconut trees in our house yard, Astrid, so I don't have to go far to see what you are saying.

Good thinking squire, to me they look like I used to feel after a night on the town..
Ray: A bit wooly headed! I believe I know that feeling, Chris.
Not very tasty looking Ray.
Ray: These are tough mushrooms, Chad...I think they would be difficult to masticate.

Good call, Ray. A whole world in minitature there.
Ray: Fungus is like that, isn't it, Alan.
Yes they do, Ray, great little things aren't they.
Ray: I like them...big and small...Frank.

Wonderful title! Mushrooms?
Ray: Some kind of fungus, Philine, but unlikely they are human-edible.
You have just made my day. I have not had one minute to spare and want to go to the woods to find gorgeous mosses, lichen, and mushrooms. These specimens are outstanding! Likey.
Ray: It is a good day for me, too, when I find photo-opportunities like this, Mary.
A tiny petrified forest. Good stuff Ray
That's a pretty weird looking fungus!

They look like nails half hammered into wood
Excellent... and so interesting up close.

Gnome like hairy figures. The one in the middle seems to be a male shroom smile
perhaps nature's prototypes before building the full scale version?
cool macro!
