Gorgeous colours/shades thereof, and translucency. What is it?

Thanks, Sry.
It's the sporangium, the spore-bearing capsule, of a moss from the garden.
About a couple of millimeters long...

Superb result.

Quite remarkable, you can make out individual cells. Itís an artistic decision, but can you make the light more even, maybe with some fill flash from the right?

Thanks, David.

And thanks, Nicholas too.

Could do, Nicholas.

But.......

It doesn't need it.

IMHO.

Evening out the lighting on one of these isn't quite so straightforward as it seems Nicholas. They are 90% water so most of whatever light you shine on it goes straight through - if you examine where the stem straightens out you will notice that the entirety of the internal structure can be seen. I therefore agree with Roger that it doesn't need any fill flash. My favourite method with these is to deliberately backlight them with sunshine to take advantage of the translucency.
