Dear Trekkers,

Back to my beloved fungi. This species, the Dryad's Saddle (Polyporus squamosus (Huds.) Fr.) is very common all over the world, one of the most dangerous wood-decomposing species. On the other side - edible when young, and may reach quite big size. Parasitizing mostly living deciduous trees.

Photo: taken near Ballyvoneen, Galway County, Ireland, early morning. Manual exposure mode. PP: slight level andd color adjustment, after re-sizing selective sharpening.

Hello Laszlo,
A species I have seen lately too close to a wood. On this picture I like especially the play of shadow and light rendered in an artistic way. Charming too the little pink flowers in the front.
Now I know the name and I know that these mushrooms are edible too.
Have a nice Sunday

Great photo Laszlo! Very good composition and impressive sharpness! The lighting and the colours are fantastic!

Hello László

Hi Laszlo.
I am not sure but I think that my single shot of fungi is the same species. Yours is simply wonderful. I like the shape of the whole group of fungi. attractive small green plants around and very cute even smaller flowers. Fine pictorial nature picture. My warm regards and TFS.

Hello László.

Congratulation for this interesting post. Interesto,ng note regarding the dangerousness of that mushroom.

Very good point of view showing us the colony of carpophorus. Good composition of the post. Sharpness and depth of field perfectly managed. Saturation of the colours properly followed. Background correct even if a little bit too dark on the top of the picture (and, then, we cannot realy perceive where the fruit-body is attached).

Nevertheless, excellent publication.

Thank you.

See you later
