Amanita muscaria.
Finally, I came across some fly agarics which had not been very eaten by local insects. I have seen good specimens several times, but without my camera.

When I had the cam, I always found them eaten, broken, rotten... this specie, although abundant, seemed to play with me.

But destinty is not always kind with you. At last I found them, but I had to do the cleaning and take the photo with rain and hard wind, leaves fliying through the scene, the poor mushrooms shaking from side to side...

I hope you like the result.

Hello Felipe, nicely composed shot of these striking red mushrooms. Good POV and accurate DOF and image clarity and sharpness is always excellent from you. Very fine work.

Hi Felipe a species I have yet to get my self also so well done on this one.
For me there are 3 pictures to be seen here. the one you show us and 2 others 1 if you crop the top group off toleave the bottom two this veiws as a single group without scrolling the screen. the same applies if you crop off the bottom ones, it works but probably not as good as yours or the 1st one I surgested. anyway TFS good to see it.

Nice shot Felipe,
Good colour, detail and sharpness.
Well composed and good exposure.
Thanks for posting, have a good weekend.

Hello Felipe. Gee wiz, I can't say it any better than me esteemed colleaques have already. Very well done & a pleasure.
Thank You & have a Great Weekend.

Excellent camera work, Felipe.

Getting these groupings in focus and all together like this, as well as the conditions you describe would not be easy.

Wonderful colors, sharp details, POV, DOF, lighting and composition.

Great job, thank you.

Hi Felipe!

We've got old tradition in Poland - on end of our secondary school, 100 days before final exams we've got big feast. At this day we all dance old Polish dance descended from Polish Nobility - a Polonaise. Danced in couples, slow and majestic, part of our history. And your photo remainds me exactly this moment - mushrooms dancing Polonaise ;-)
