What am I?
I was thinking to use this as one of my “What am I?” quizzes

Picking up from where “Tag Along With Me on a Photo Shoot at Kyoto’s Gioji Temple” left off, after the initial moss shots, I turned to the thatched roof of a small gate.

The first photo is looking up the slant to the reeds making the top layer of the roof.

Here's looking at the evenly-sliced bottom face, which perhaps would be considered the eaves if there were walls...

Nearby a set of ferns seems to be springing from the base of a tree and have a real “presence” (I'm not sure what that even means for a plant), but whatever “it” these ferns had was lost in the photo, but FWIW, here it is:

Nicolas then found some mushrooms the size of the head of a pin...

The white dots in the lower left are the mushrooms in question. He's using my Voigtländer 125mm with an adapter on his Olympus E-P2. Here's one of the shots he got:

I like the pictures of Nicolas wielding the big lens to shoot the little mushrooms, so a few more of that...
