Gilled Splendor

This challenge closed almost 4 years ago.

The Challenge

For this challenge, I’m asking you to photograph the UNDERSIDE of a mushroom cap!
I want to see those gills, those pores, the smooth or roughness of it.
This applies ONLY to mushrooms and fungi (not the molds/lichens/mosses…sorry!).
I know many of us are getting older and starting to get stiff in the joints….but lets see if we can work with it for this challenge!

Judging / Voting Criteria

Photo that is image of the underside of a mushroom and fungi cap. ONLY mushrooms and fungi for this. All others I’ll delete.

Rewards & Prizes

I’ll put it up on the main page so everyone can see the beauty that is hidden in those darker places of the world.
