When I joined I mentioned my technique for photographing flowers and fungi at ground level. My problem is that with two artificial knees, I have difficulty kneeling, and even more difficulty getting up again. My solution is to stand with my back to the subject, then bend right over and photograph it from between my ankles.
Here are a few photos taken with this technique:
This first one was in a graveyard and is of an unknown Agaric fungus.

The remainder were taken in my local woods, with a ring light around the lens of my compact camera.

Laccaria_amethystina1280.jpg

This is Laccaria amethystina, or the Amethyst Deceiver. Despite the virulent colour, it is quite edible.

Xerula_radicata1280.jpg

This is Xerula radicata or Rooting Shank.

The final one was on a log lying at ground level.
Fuligo_septica1280.jpg

This is Fuligo septica, a slime mould commonly known as Flowers of Tan or, more evocatively, Dog's Vomit. Slime Moulds are organisms neither plants nor animals nor Fungi.
