FAMILIY OF MUSHROOMS

Olympus E-M10 Mark III, M. Zuiko ED 60mm macro, f8, 1/80s, ISO 400
Produced by a single mycelium, some mushrooms may arise in groups that show specimens with different growth states. In this particular case, they remind me of a father, mother and all his offspring.


Produïts per un únic miceli, alguns bolets poden sorgir en grups que mostren exemplars amb diferents estats de creixement. En aquest cas particular em recorden un pare, la mare i tota la seva descendència.

LIGHT MUSHROOMS

Some mushrooms have translucent bodies that seem to glow in the dark when the light affects a certain way.

Alguns bolets tenen cossos translúcids que semblen resplendir a la foscor quan la llum incideix d’una determinada manera.

THE VEINS OF THE VEGETALS

The ferns were pioneers in incorporating the conductive vessels for the transport of water and nutrients throughout their body and that have become so necessary in the conquest of the land by the higher plants.

Les falgueres van ser pioneres en incorporar els vasos conductors pel transport d’aigua i nutrients al llarg del seu cos i que han esdevingut tan necessaris en la conquesta de la terra per part de les plantes superiors.

IMPROVING ATTRACTION

Olympus E-M10 Mark III, 60 mm macro, f 3.2, 1/200 s, ISO 1600
The violet bracts of the small European oregano flower (Origanum vulgare) are quite obvious and allow all the inflorescence to be more attractive to the insects.

Les bràctees violàcies de la minúscula flor de l’orenga (Origanum vulgare) son força evidents i permeten fer tota la inflorescència més atractiva pels insectes.

SNAPDRAGON

When we laterally press the corolla of a snapdragon flower (Antirrhinum majus), it opens up and takes a shape that reminds the mouth of some animals. For this reason, in many places it is commonly known with the name of these creatures.

Quan pressionem lateralment la corol·la d’una flor de conillet (Antirrhinum majus), aquesta s’obre i pren una forma que recorda la boca d’alguns animals. Per aquest motiu, en molts llocs se la coneix vulgarment amb el nom d’aquests criatures.

THE CONCERNED CHIFFCHAFF

Nikon D7200, Sigma 150-500mm, f8, 1/800s, ISO 640

This little chiffchaff (Phylloscopus collybita) seems a bit worried. And there are reasons. When autumn comes, he will has to start sharing the scarce food available with the thousands of his fellows that will arrive during the corresponding migration.

Aquest petit mosquiter comú (Phyloscopus collybita) sembla una mica preocupat. I en té motius. Quan arribi la tardor, haurà de començar a compartir l’escàs menjar disponible amb els milers de congèneres que arribaran durant la migració corresponent.

SOWING BY SPRINKLING

Nikon D7200, Nikkor 105 mm micro, f4, 1/500s, ISO 200

Throughout the summer, poppies expose their fruits in the form of dry capsules that show small openings under the upper disc where the tiny seeds appear when the plant is shaken by the wind.

Al llarg de l’estiu, les roselles deixen al descobert els seus fruits en forma de càpsules seques que mostren unes petites obertures sota el disc superior per on surten les diminutes llavors quan la planta és sacsejada pel vent.
