[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I continue sharing the photos of my trip to home (Hungary) - this time about Coprinopsis picacea (Bull.) Redhead, Vilgalys & Moncalvo, the Magpie Inkcap, which is one of the most spectacular toadstools in my opinion. More than 6 years ago I shared 2 photos of this species on TN, they're here and here if interested.

Photo: taken in the Bükk National Park, a few kilometers from Szentlélek ranch. Handheld, no flash, shutter priority exposure mode. PP: level and white balance adjustment, after re-sizing selective sharpening.

Hello Laszlo,
A perfect shot of this rather attractive Inkcap. We have a few types of Inkcaps here in Ohio, but I have never seen this particular specimen. You managed to capture exceptional detail while the colors and textures are awesome. A real eye catching photo and one to be proud of. Great job!!

Hello Laszlo my neighbour,
A beautiful species, well shaped and pretty with this black/white cap. Your former pictures show well its shape too. Well taken shot with excellent sharpness, good framing and natural colours. Thanks a lot for your kind words on my picture too.
Take care

Hello Laszlo,
Another master piece from the "master of noise detection"! Hope you are still doing well my friend. What a beauty! Perfect sharpness to the smallest detail. I like the low POV, DOF and the coloration of the composition. Excellent work again my friend.
