[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Boletus edulis - in my opinion king of fungi.
This photo was taken today in the forest in Zegartowice (40km from Krakow). I've been there for about 3 hours and found over 30 fungi like this one.
Fortunatelly there were no other people in the forest, so atmosphere was quiet and peaceful just like nature should be.
Thanks for visiting.

piekny prawdziwek ale w ty roku prawie kazdy jest robaczywy przynajmniej u mnie tak jest.Bardzo fajne ujecie z niskiego POV.
Pozdrawiam, Pawel

Yo también estoy de acuerdo en que es el rey (king), al menos gastronómicamente hablando ;0)
Bellos y delicados colores. Luz ténue muy apropiada. Un excelente trabajo Maciej.

Hi Maciej,

The subject is well framed. The macro point of view is showing the details and colors of the Boletus edulis. Using a tripod and a shutter speed of 1/2 a seconds is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.
