    Cool Cedar-Apple Rust

    During warm rainy days in late April and early May, cedar trees infected with the cedar-apple rust fungus will develop bright orange, gelatinous galls.

    Thanks for looking,

    The subject itself is beautiful. Gorgeous photo as well... shouldn't you be treating it though?

    It is harmless to the Cedar and most of my apple trees are resistant, nothing to be worried about.

    Would it be weird if I said that fungus looks oddly appetizing?

    Man, this stuff is fascinating. Beautiful shots, too. I'm going to have to start looking into those old lenses, you're getting some absolutely spectacular shots with them. The bokeh in that first shot is beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for the kind words.... it is a fascinating subject.

    Kyle, the Helios 44-2 58mm f/2 is an amazing lens.... and one easily found on ebay for under 50USD

    Couple more images taken that day...




    The Helios is bokeh-tastic

    I was thinking the same thing. Maybe put on top of some pasta or sauteed with some butter or garlic

    Great pictures!
