In The Virgin Forest pt. I. - The Common

Dear Friends,

Thank You very much for helping me with Your words to get out of depression (see my last photo). You mean so much to me!

This time I'm quite happy, because I can share a pic with You which was photographed last summer in the "Virgin Forest". This beech forest got this name because there wasn't any sylviculture here since the 1830's - it was the first ever protected area of Hungary, getting the protected status in 1942. So, it's a paradise for fungi also. Many, locally very rare species were detected here, like Gyromitra parma (a false morel specie, 2nd and 3rd detection in Hungary from 3 overall) or Xerula caussei, but of course the common species may be found in big bunch in the right time. The area's officially not visitable without the permission of Bükk National Park Directorate.

This specie on the pic, Polyporus varius, is very common here in Europe on fallen branches, and I found many here in the Virgin Forest. I upload another image as workshop, where You can see the habit more.

The up-to-dateness of the pic is tomorrow (there's Saturday morning here in Europe now) I'll visit this wonderful forest again - even if there's drought here at this moment, so not too much fungi will wait for us, I hope it'll be an unforgettable trip again.

Thanx, cheers, László

Servus Laci,
Very good and interesting pictures of fungi...Congratulation for your work!

Ciao Laszlo,
bentornato alla luce e spero che i tuoi bellissimi funghi e la natura ti diano momenti di felicitŕ per affrontare le difficoltŕ della vita; eccellenti POV basso e composizione, ottima definizione, mi piace molto lo sfondo con la bellissima luce e la vegetazione del sottobosco, ottima immagine anche in WS.
Grazie e complimenti
Buon fine settimana

Hi Laszlo,
A very good shot of this strange fungi that looks as though it can't decide whether to be a bracket fungus,or have a stem,or be a bolete,or not.
Th light and general environment creates a great 'ambience'.
A very pleasant shot.
TFS & Cheers

(ps .... glad to hear you are happier today :)

Hello Again!

Good to hear that you're better! Forest can cure every disease :-) I like this shot, especially composition with low POV and silhouette of fungus perfectly visible on BG. BG itself also looks very good with black parts and fresh, green and shinning plants. Very spring picture.

Hello dear Lásló
After so long I enter to see your last pictures and I see sadly that you have been through a depression. I am so sorry, but happy to know that you are now better. Well, I hope your mood is high up so you can find and capture a lot of new curious and interesting mushrooms in the Virgin Forest or anywhere. This one may be common but it's very curious and captured from an excellent point of view.
Congratulations and thank you very much for sharing.
My best wishes

Tus tomas de hongos son delicadas y sorprendentes; como siempre unos ángulos efectivos y espectaculares. Excelente trabajo.
Saludos Laszlo: Josep Ignasi.
