A blue mushroom from the inland track in Abel Tasman. This is as close to true color as I can remember.

    I searched so hard for these when I was just in the area, but alas and alack! I didn't see any so I will stare at your amazing photos some more.

    Did you photoshop the color on this? I understand that it is really blue, but blown up, this looked like the mushroom has been over saturated.

    Dezz - On this version I did some sharpening to show the little insects underneath, other than that I adjusted the hue, but not saturation. I have about 20 shots at different aperture settings and this was the one I liked the most and I didn't notice the insects underneath until the computer.

    Nice capture. I saw my first blue mushrooms just a couple of weeks ago but never saw one before in all my 60 years.
