Hello everyone,

At the end of September one of my pink dreams came true and I was able to spend 2 weeks of holiday at home in Hungary with my family. Of course we were searching for fungi during our hillwalks, and managed to photograph some rarities. One of them is my beloved Rhodotus palmatus (Bull.) Maire, a species protected by the laws in Hungary. Although considered extremely rare, in the past few years I found it many times in deep, wet valleys and canyons, in not less than 7 locations. 3 years ago I already shared an image of this species here in TN - please find links with useful species infos there.

Tech talk: handheld, shutter priority exposure mode, flash. In Photoimpact moderate cropping, color adjustment, minimal increasing of saturation, after re-sizing selective sharpening with Neat Image module.

May your 'pink dreams' come true, too!

Hello Laszlo,
What a fascinating fungus. Excellent sharpness and splendid colours. Nice centered composition.

Ciao Laszlo, great macro of beautiful and rare specie, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Laszlo - Thank you very much for your inspiration and admiration on my last post. I am glad that you understood what I wanted to show in my picture. Now about your picture- I haven't heard about this Fungi before. Very useful NOTE and I have also watched the picture you have posted long time ago. I like the way you have used flash light and sharpen the picture without destroying its originality. Excellent depth of field with splendid natural colour made it attractive against such dark BG. Thanks for sharing. Regards - Srikumar

Hello Laszlo,
What a beautiful pinkish colored fungi you have displayed, I have never seen one quite like it before. The membrane like texture gives it an almost (human tissue) appearance. Tac sharp focus while showing exceptional detail. Exposure is perfect and DOF is superb. Great shot!!

Hello Laszlo,
Interesting fungus. Excellent colours and patterns on the wall. Nice composition.
