Ola José,
Though most of prefer to see autumn pictures at the end of the summer this is an excellent capture taken from your archives. The DOF showing these four Fly Agarics in their natural habitat is excellent and the POV is great.
I shall look forward to the mushroom picking season now!
TFS this beauty,

Hola Jose
Vaya unas setas más hermosas y más coloridas! Aunque no sean mortíferas da miedo sólo verlas con ese tono rojo tan llamativo. Interesante capture.

Hi Jose,
a very unique pink and spotted toadstools.
Well composed in its surrounding intact.
Beautiful and so fresh as if it can be eaten like red apples.
