[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is boletus edulis. Christodoulos (chrimarkis) and Laurens (euroblinkie) have found a millipede (Class Diplopoda) on the base of this mushroom :) Thanks friends.
This photo was taken in August in the forest in Zegartowice (40km from Krakow). I've been there for about 3 hours and found over 30 fungi like this one.
Fortunatelly there were no other people in the forest, so atmosphere was quiet and peaceful just like nature should be.
Unfortunatelly this fungi season in many areas in Poland was lost. So I have not many photos of fungi.
Thanks for visiting.

Bonjour Maciej,
Est il comestible ? Je ne connaissais pas cet espèce de champignon.
l'angle de prise de vue semble parfaitement adapté.
Bien fait.

Hello Maciej,
excellent exposure and great sharpness and depth of field.
For the whole composition, I think it is important that you
included the entire leaf to the left.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Maciej.
Fantastic reproduction of the tiniest details of the mushroom. I am also impressed with fine POV, great composition and very pleasant transition from sharpness to blurriness. Well done and TFS.
