What a strange mushroom

This mushroom-shaped cup was met on the remains of burned trees for the development of land: it is probably a discomycete carbonicole.

Discomycetes These are among the first colonizers of burned areas (intentionally or accidentally).

According to my companions, the mushroom presented hers is edible at a young age, before development in as far as this does photography. For cons, the specimen presented in the photograph may not be used because it has become relatively tough.


The subject is motionless: the camera is set to 'automatic', given the limited time available to do the shooting.

The couple aperture / speed was determined by the unit: speed of 1 / 200, with an opening equivalent to f/4.9. The focal length is 23 mm on a Canon compact.
