Hi Taz, this fungi looks very unusual to be found in a bush - more like it should be found on a Pacific island. I love your whole salad bowl full of greens with the odd dead leaf. Well found, thank you.

I know you post this ones to put more envy on me. Sooner or later I will find one. Then I will take mi revanche :D
Thanks very much for sharing, Christian.

Hi Christian,
Very good and interesting picture indeed of this fungus which wets my appetite for more knowledge in this field! Thank you very much,

Nice, sharp and very well composed. About edibility, you're right but nobody bothers to pick'em when the forests are plenty of tastier mushrooms!

Regards, Petru

Hi Christian,
that's a pretty arrangement.
This moshroom is so phascinating, it realy looks like a plant living under water, so I would have been not surprised, if there were swimming some fishes :-)
Very well done, I like it, bye

Merry Christmas to you and to those whom you cherish, Christian, and thanks for sharing your beautifull pictures. I really believe that it is worth to make it to be in contact with our increasingly small world.
I am at Granby with my father. We have a great time together preparing the banquet to come for Christmas.
Prends soins de toi mon ami français. En souhaitant que vos rénovations se parachèvent bientôt!
