Hello dave ! For your nice mushroom I think to "Aminita fulva" to be verified by a specialist as Sarcodon / Marco Della Maggiora.
Thanks for sharing.

Hello Dave!
Very nice close up.Colors,clear details,POV,blurred BG,3D effect and composition are wonderful.Thanks for sharing.

Hi Dave,
Christian Pourre (TAZ) underrates himself; your photo shows really Amanita fulva (Schaeffer 1774) Fries 1815.
In effect this specimen is a bit light, lighter than the typical Amanita fulva; this colour remembers nearly Amanita crocea (Quélét 1898) Singer 1949.
However the colour of Amanita fulva is very variable and it is easy to find it light as much as your photo shows.

Marco (Sarcodon)
