Hello Hasan,
Not quite sure why, but left side appears soft on focus while right side is very sharp? Overall a nice shot of this unique looking fungi. Lovely colors and good exposure.

Shalom Hasan,

Very inserting posting.

Lucky you, the terrain is already wet. Ours is still very dry, waiting for rain.

All the best,
