Monomad: Velvet Parachute

in Black And White6 months ago (edited)

Here I've included some closeup pics of mushrooms for the daily #monomad challenge hosted by @monochromes.

I found these velvet parachutes (Marasmius elegans) last June in a local forest close to my town.

Some of them grow alone, in pairs, and in a trio. Juvenile mushrooms quite a bit mimic sprouts, and if they were edible, they would be incredibly excellent cooked as Cap cai—a traditional Chinese-Indonesian cuisine. But I don't think it's edible. However, since they look so beautiful in the frames, I'm content just to stare at them.







All of the images here are my own work, taken with Xiaomi POCO NFC smartphone and an assembled external macro lens.
