A Snail's Eye View

I was lying on the grass in the orchard taking an image of these little toadstools, when I hear 'Yoohoo'. It was the neighbour from down the road, standing at the gate, laughing at my antics! We had a lovely long chat with the required 2-3 metres between us.
you have a good neighbour! But your 'antics' produced the best focus for this mushroom, I've seen! fav

@maggiemae Yes - we have been swapping eggs for tomatoes; feijoa for chilli jelly etc. They are lovely neighbours and we have a great relationship but don't live in one another's pockets.

Love this

@dide So good - the last thing you want is the neighbour to be knocking on the door - 1/2 cup of sugar?

The positions and angles we get in to get the correct perspective must make many passers by smile, well this image has been well worth it , lovely perspective,colour and clarity Dianne, Fav:)

Wow, what a pov. Reminds me of the fairytale pictures where to protagonist is so tiny that the mushrooms look like trees. I would have laughed at you, too, seeing you in that position.

I envy you still being able to get down to do a photo like this. I would be calling my neighbor to get me off the ground. LOL

@sangwann @joansmor @pcoulson it’s great being a photographer and even lying on the ground in public places and not caring what other’s think.

Ha ha I am sure your friends and neighbors are used to your camera antics now.
March 30th, 2020  
oh I love this
March 30th, 2020  
Very pretty capture

Beautiful ;)

I like seeing these fungi in various stages of ageing. As for “antics”, I have spent years on my stomach, or haunches, recording wild orchids and fungi, so I can guess how you must have looked.

Such a nice capture and so good you got some much needed contact at the same time!

Wonderful close up. Fav.

Fantastic pov.

That is so beautiful....rich green is gorgeous, and nice to chat.
March 30th, 2020  
A beautiful capture and obviously a good way of attracting attention in these isolated days!
March 30th, 2020  
Beautiful shot. You have to get low to take a shot like this; I am often to be found kneeling, or even lying, on the ground in my garden. Luckily I don't have many neighbours to notice.
March 30th, 2020  
lovely photo,I can imagine the position you were in to take it.
March 30th, 2020  
Great pov and details. Fav!! 😀
March 30th, 2020  
You would be glad of the chat....hope you got up off the ground gracefully & easily with an audience! 😁 lovely capture!
March 30th, 2020

@happypat yes - we go back a long way - born in the same year and at school together from about age 9. Neighbours as kids across the back of the farm. She is a wonderful cook and eggs we give her sometimes come back as a cake!

What a bloomin' skite you are 'lying in the grass'!!! If I got down there you'd have to get one of your Muscular Males to get me up again!!

@golftragic ha - I didn’t say it was elegant!
March 31st, 2020  
Lovely shot, well worth the effort :).
March 31st, 2020  
Worth being laughed at by the neighbours - great shot. Only another photographer would understand, lol!
