Hi there,

it's time for slime molds again! These ones are about 2-3mm tall. I found it end of October on a wet branch.
This is by the way the first picture which I've taken with my new Laowa f/2,8 2,5-5x lens (magnification 4,5X).

It's a stack of 60 picture with a manual macro rail.

The lens is just amazing! You can even see me in the reflection of one of the slime molds!

Have fun,

Wow that looks awesome, great stack! What aperture did you use? I've been looking for slime molds myself this fall, but no luck.
I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun with the Laowa, it's my favourite lens to use. The image quality is just amazing.

I'm not sure... I guess it was f/3.2 or f/4. Something around...

That looks fantastic! I love the texture differences between the shiny ones and the dry one, all of your slime shots are great but this lens really emphasis the tiny size they are even more and I'm quite impressed by it. The molds remind me a bit of cute forest spirts I saw in a Japanese anime I saw a long time ago. Very nice stack, super sharp, detailed and clean. Well done!

Just Wow. Perfect focus on the dark shiny ones. I went to singing: "Wouldn't you like to fly in my slimy mold balloon".....
