Bolete

Bolete mushroom

I am not very good at identifying mushrooms, even with my handy mushroom identification book that I reference after taking a photo of one. I know this is a bolete, which are a common, mostly edible family of fungus. However, I do not know which type this is specifically. All I know is that it was standing alone in a pretty patch of moss just screaming for me to take its photo. I love photographing mushrooms so much!

  10. A very beautiful composition--I love how the colors in the moss echo and enhance the mushroom's color. Lovely!

  12. Nice photo! It reminds me of when I was a child and I would go mushroom hunting after the thunderstorm and rain have come to a stop.

  14. My husband makes fun of me because I always stop and take photos of mushrooms. They're just so interesting and they just seem to appear overnight. Thanks for sharing.

  17. I love mushrooms as well and try to get better at photographing them in the wild. The ones I normally see are rather close to the ground in darker forests....not the greatest for capturing a picture. Yours looks lovely, nice job. I would be afraid to eat any even if I had an identification book.
