I saw some Leptothrix discophora films at Schoepfle Garden last month. Here is one patch, with details of the overall photograph beneath.

These are amazingly beautiful and full of rich and surprising color!

Thanks, Clare. No matter how many times I encounter these films, they always surprise me.

Excellent set, Linda. Beautiful colors and well composed.

Thank you, Harrie. I thought I’d add the details because they’re hard to make out in the overall photograph.

That was an amazing patch, no? It’s like some primordial stew brewing up birth and death together. That makes sense, right? 😉 Seriously, the colors and details, and the contrast between the film and the leaves, wonderful. I like having the details too – I like all of them, the way the water is rolling over the leaves, the way the leaf shapes are sharp against the film, and of course, the metallic colors in all their splendor. Sorry! I’m going on today….

It was a little different from others I’ve photographed, a little more blue, a little more broken up. . . . Hey, Lynn, go on all you’d like! Seriously, thank you once more for your careful observations.

What a glorious set of images – the colours look almost solarized.

Thanks, Andy. Leptothrix discophora films have such a variety of appearances.
