  1. These are unknown insect eggs about 0.25 mm in diameter. Shot with Xpan 30mm f/5.6 reverse mounted on Nikon 105 f/2.8. 2021-08-01 17-33-23 (B,Radius8,Smoothing4) x1500.jpg
  2. Excellent image, Edwin. I love the way light plays with the surface texture, giving it a metallic eyeball effect. That's really good.

    My cool round things are much larger, around a whopping 2mm, give or take some. These are forming sporangia of a Hemitrichia species, likely H. clavata or H. calyculata. Yes, it's a slime mold. When mature they will be a little larger, golden, and fluffy with spore encrusted springy threads. Shot with my trusty workhorse, the Canon Rebel XSi with the 60mm efs lens at 1:1.

  3. Round and macro, but maybe too large here?
