These are great shots of the big white boletes at Coal Creek.
I'm pretty sure you've got Austroboletus niveus in all these shots though.
A.lacunosus is actually quite a bit s bit smaller,with a tan/brown coloured cap and a much thinner and darker stipe.
I'll post one myself tonight so you can see it.
Im glad your fungi shots all came out so well.
It looks like the trip was well worth it.

An excellent collage showing some bolete mushrooms. All three images are sharp and well exposed to present the mushrooms fro a fine POV.
We have similar species that are edible, the largest being very tasty and sometimes measuring 20cm across the hat, but we have to wait until September!
TFS this fine collage,

Hello Chris, This is a nice collage and presented very nice. Excellent note. Ganesh
Very interesting presentation of this monster. Many kind of boletus reach in spain and italy this size too, but I am afraid that african species win the price of the biggest toadstool, have a LOOK, I would love to find THIS ONE :D
Best regards, Felipe.

Fantastic photos and collage. Light is natural, with good exposure. Not as big mushrooms as on the links Felipe (extramundi) gave, but giants nevertheless. :) Thanx for showing us them.
Congrats, best regards, László
