This image was created in my garden – an old rotting fence post was adorned with Comatricha slime mould fruiting bodies. I used an ultra-fine mist spray to add the droplets, to give the image a further dimension, and the surface water in the foreground also gave pleasing reflections. The background was created using a colourful strawberry leaf, and I then focus stacked 56 images together in post-processing.
