[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this amazing group in a weeping willow hollow trunk (larger view here) on the riverside where I observe birds regularly. I was surprised by the size, the beauty and the clean soft texture of this group. Stupid people have been burning papers and wood (strange barbecue !) in the cavity at the base of the tree, so the inside surface above acted as a chimney and was all charcoal black.
Nevertheless, the tree seems doing well and this yellow marvel grew inside.
Now, what is it? Any idea would be appreciated.
As you've noticed on the Exif data, the light was poor, so I made corrections on the exposure (highlight, shadow and gamma).
No color enhancement has been made.
Camera was placed on the edge of the trunk.

Such a pretty sight, colours and shapes. Nice and sharp too. Good job...

I have never seen one of this in nature, but looks very much like "Laetiporus sulphureus" in my books. And it grows in live tree, almost sure is this one.
It is edible, although causes some alergic reaction in some people.
Excellent shot, I love this kind of dark places, light becames different and magical with the moody atmosphere. For this kind of shots, the 717 is a jewel ;-)
Great to see the WS with the place where they grow.
Thanks so much for the dedication, is much apreciated.
My best wishes, Felipe.

Beau spécimen du "Laetiporus sulphureus" que vous avez bien photographié. La couleur de ce champignon varie du jaune-orange au gris.... Le mien sur TN était déjà plus orangé. Compliments Jean-Michel.

Outstanding image, great pose and nice colors. TFS, JM

Hello Jean Michel,

This is a beautiful picture. Very well composed and excellent exposure. The light is very warm, details are sharp and the yellow color is great. Wonderful stuff. Well done & TFS!


Hi Jean Michel,
Why just Felipe? - we also want to enjoy this nice capture :-)
The mushrooms are very interesting and what I like the most is the light in the image - it somehow enhances the curves and gives the impression of an underwater coral.

Hola Jean Michel,
Una buena foto donde se aprecian bien las texturas y el color ademas de tener muy buena luz y nitidez. La especie estoy de acuerdo con Felipe se trata del (Laetiporus sulphureus), parasita los árboles vivos hasta que los mata y después vive como saprófito. Un saludo
