Moss Capsules

Michael John

Oatley, Australia

Artist's Description

This macro depicts a small clump of moss with its tiny spore capsules rising above.
At certain times mosses produce spore capsules which appear as beak-like capsules borne aloft on thin stalks.
I believe this to be Juniper Haircap Moss (Polytrichum juniperinum).
Captured in a rainforest within the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park, NSW, Australia.
Canon 400D, as is.
Tv 1/60; Av 4.1; Lens 7.3 – 29.2mm; Focal Length 29.2mm.
