SUBJECT MATTER: Fungus and other organisms have also developed and evolved through time and often grow using life of other organisms or during decay. Vivid texture created by the lichen, fungus and growths which could be interpreted through various mixed media methods.
Lichens are composite organisms consisting of a fungus (the mycobiont) and a photosynthetic partner (the photobiont or phycobiont) growing together in a symbiotic relationship. The photobiont is usually either a green alga (commonly Trebouxia) or cyanobacterium (commonly Nostoc).The morphology, physiology and biochemistry of lichens are very different from those of the isolated fungus and alga in culture. Lichens occur in some of the most extreme environments on Earth
There are a few things to point out in this picture, first thing, depth of field, this picture makes the mushroom the main focus, whilst the background is blurred. Also, we can see the texture inside of the mushroom. I like this picture the most it is zoomed in, and the texture is smooth.
