Selective Focus

One way to deal with the overwhelming biomass of the rain forest is to focus down. As usual, I always try to get everything into one picture and I really have to think in order to stop and look at the distinct parts that make up the big picture. Above, instead of everything (see yesterday's pics), I managed to get it down to two items, mushrooms and moss. This is much more peaceful.

Sweet photo, Benjamin.
I can literally feel the cool moisture as if I were there...

Me apetece cogerlos... ese brillo tan especial de la humedad es una invitación a respirar hondo...
¡Fantástica!

I like to catch them ... so special that gleam of moisture is an invitation to take a deep breath ...
Fantastic!

LOVE this close-up work.

As a kid I had the fantasy of living in the forest. The abundance of life, all sheltered under a canopy gives it a sacred and precious nature.
These photos capture that feel.

This is really cool as you can see just how wet everything is. Wonder what the mushrooms are though? I've not encountered these pink ones before.
