I will be happy when I can get out there and shoot like I want to....for now, I have to improvise. Ordinarily, I would have laid on the grass and got this little mushroom in it's natural habitat. Instead, I had to pull it up, and rig up something to hold it against the window. I tried different exposures and took these at two different times of day for the light. After working with this silly thing for over an hour, I decided it is quite beautiful in it's own way. Now if I could only figure out how to stop my two Dachshunds from gobbling then up, I'd have it made!!!
