Lycoperdon marginatum. I had lost my macro lens attachment and improvised with a magnifying glass.

Thanks so much, Juthro! Haha I am hoping the same.. I actually just use a cheap macro lens attachment that screws onto my regular 18-55mm lens (roughly $20 on eBay). It does the trick when you're on a budget! Someday I hope to have a nice Laowa lens so I can pick up all the fine details - bumblebee hairs, spider eyes, butterfly wings... I'd love to do more insect photography and fungi/lichen macros.

simply reversing a lens turns it into a macro lens. Adapter rings used to be available for the big name lenses so you could screw the lens backward onto the camera body.

 

I haven't gone looking for an adapter for many years but you'd think they'd be popular enough to keep making them. They're a cheap workaround an otherwise pricey new lens.

 

Maybe Needles or Steampunk can crank some out in their mad scientist labs :)

I have been there... If I am not mistaken, the South came out of the trees and around the bend in the distance and marched straight across this field directly into the fire of cannons just like the one in the photo... They were some brave dudes... Joining them in formation would be a hard pass from me....

 

Chattanooga is where General Grant took control of the Union army, defeated the "western theater" confederate forces and opened up a route into the heart of the south... Sherman's march to the sea and the eventual burning of Atlanta (and about every city between Tennessee and Atlanta...) followed prior to the end of the war in Virginia...

 

The Civil was was dramatic and fascinating...

That reminds me of  Gen. Patton when he says, "I was here."

Great movie, and a great man (actually, great men, both Scott, and Patton), even if he (they) was more than a little crazy.

Just a cool picture of one of our campfires while the family and I were on vacation this past week.

I'm always amazed that you can see these kinds of details with that damn bag over your head.... Any relation to Buckethead?

I've seen that green come out of firewood before. I think sometimes we get wood that's had copper wire nailed to it or through it and it gives up that greeny color while burning.

 

Not related to Buckethead. Several F***heads, though!

I took this photo in 2014 at the H.R. Giger Museum in Gruyères, Switzerland. I absolutely love this sculpture.

I love Gigers work, thanks for sharing it :)
 
Here is a cool sculpture that I saw when I visited Fairbanks a few years ago.  It was made with construction debris, and scraps.

Actually, my mother-in-law bought these little packets to toss into the fire. They lasted for a couple hours. The kids really enjoyed it

There's a big disc golf wedding going on here this weekend, well, today was the wedding actually.  I looked out at the big chestnut tree and liked what the light was doing here just before sunset.  But, I couldn't get the camera to focus on the kids on the swing and the tree.  It wanted to go where the light was across the valley.   But anyway, this is what I managed to get with 20 tries.

In for a penny, in for a pound...

 

Here is Alder's wider angle shot.  It's worth noting that the now adjusted pic's file has grown over 3.5 times as large as the one I started with.
