[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yesterday we had a little trip to Province Forest in Sapanca. We had planned that visit with a two curious photography beginners in the last week. But the saturday came freezy and rainy. But i thought that no need to change the plan, we are in october, it's normal and these curious friends waited for this trip along the week. So we had there and had a great day, full of fun although the weather conditions.

We found some king boletes (boletus edulis) look delicious. Maybe not so much but enough for taste for sure and tonight we tasted it with my family on breaking today's fast (you know we are in Ramadan). You can see my king boletes on ws post.

This community looked wonderful to us. These are sulphur tuft (hypholoma fasciculare).

Hypholoma fasciculare

Common Name: Sulphur tuft

Synonym: Naematoloma fasciculare

Cap 2-7 cm broad, convex, expanding to nearly plane in age, sometimes with a broad low umbo; margin incurved when young, wavy if clustered, often slightly appendiculate with veil fragments; surface smooth, moist, disc yellow-orange to tawny-orange, shading to a lighter margin, overlapped caps often patchy purple-brown from shed spores; flesh pale yellow, thin; odor not distinctive; taste bitter.

Gills adnate, crowded, narrow, yellow becoming sulphur-green, in age dingy, olive-brown from maturing spores.

Stipe 2-9 cm tall, 0.4-1.5 cm thick, equal or tapering downward, hollow, often twisted, pale yellow with brown fibrils, bruising brown on handling; partial veil evanescent, usually leaving sparse fragments on the cap margin but sometimes forming a superior fibrillose annular zone.

Spores 6.5-8 x 3.5-4.5 µm, elliptical, smooth, with an apical pore; spore print purple-brown.

Gregarious to clustered on hardwood/conifer logs or stumps, sometimes in grass from buried wood; fruiting from late fall to mid-winter.

Poisonous. Opinion is divided on the toxicity of this species, but since it is extremely bitter, the question is purely academic.

Hypholoma fasciculare is often abundant in Bay Area woodlands forming bright yellow clusters on both hardwood and conifer wood. The sulphur-green gills, slightly appendiculate cap margin in young specimens, and bitter taste are important field characters. A close cousin, Hypholoma capnoides, is not as common in our area. It lacks the sulphur-green gills and bitter taste.

Merhaba Ersin.
Aslında bu gün ben seni bol bol andım. Kulağın çınladı mı bilmem. Bizim bahçenin arkasındaki ormanda o kadar çok mantar vardı ki. Ama ne yazık ki makinemin pili bitmişti, elektrik olmadığından dolduramadım ve fotoğraflayamadım. Burda olsan kesin bize mantar ziyafeti çekerdin, ben cesaret edip toplayamadım.

Fotoğrafın bana peri bacalarını anımsattı. Nefis bir kompozisyon oluşturmuşsun. Renklerin tekdüzeliği ve şekillerin uyumu nefis olmuş. Eline sağlık.

Bu arada bizin bahçenin de sizinkinden kalır yanı yoktur eminim ama bizim burda fazlaca zirai ilaçlama yapıldığından börtü böcek pek olmuyor. O nedenle baksam da göremiyorum. Kelebekler çok ama henüz geçinmeyi öğrenemedik onlarla. Ben yaklaşınca kaçıyorlar.

Hello Ersin!

Very common fungus yet very nice looking. I like warm colours and composition with 'crowd'. So, autumn arrived to Turkey also?

Hello Ersin,
Well done on this forest of mushrooms. So good that you can go out and pick out the one that you want. Nice composition and pov. Sharpness and exposure are great. TFS

Hehehe...so many of them :)
Quite an interesting post here, my friend!
The mushrooms in the WS photo look great, too (and very big :))
I'm glad to hear you had fun.
Nice shot, with excellent details and light, lovely natural tones and colos.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Ersin.
This is a very lovely close up filling the frame, I like light and colours, but the composition is the best :)
Are you sure this is Hypholoma fasciculare? it does not look like it.
I will have a look, and tell you something later. Regards and TFS.
