Pinkish color, marginate gills, growth on Douglas-fir. There were others nearby in clusters, but I was drawn to this especially vibrant individual.

Ant infected by fungus. Presumably some species of Cordyceps, although I am under the impression that the genus has been split up, and I'm clueless as to where this one belongs.

Description

Second attempt photographing the bioluminescence of O. olivascens. These specimens were slightly brighter than the ones from my previous attempt, but still very, very dim. Focus-stack of three 20-minute exposures at f/8 and ISO 5000. I also made another 20-minute exposure with the lens cap on for dark frame subtraction - this was applied to each image before stacking. I also experimented with 30-minute exposures and a lower ISO, but they were not as sharp. There is definitely subject movement going on with these beauties.
