Interesting photo. Definitely caught my eye for the obvious reason. The photographers note is very descriptive and educational.

hi petru. I like the title and it and truth which the name of this mushroom goes very well with its forme.belle photograph.
Great title. Your title is just as great as its name in Latin . Si totusi cum ii spune in romaneste ca eu tot nu stiu, am vazut si auzit de "basina calului" dar de asta nu.

MotherNature getting a little kinky on us here Petru... Do you think she has a sense of humor?
Everything about the picture is well done except the exposure which is a little on the indecent side...

Very nice mushroom shot. Colorfull with very good sharpness and very good details. Great composition and note too. Very good job. WEll done. Thanks for sharing.
Excellent title for this interesting fungi. It looks so penile (LOL).
Despite your warning, I would love to know whatthe Romanian name is and what it means, cultural interpretation is just part of nature.
The shot is great. We have similar species in Australia, but I have not seen one yet.
Well done and good note.

Great macro fungi shot with excellent focus,colors,pov,dof and note.TFS
This forest must be a paradise for women and ...
Jokes appart, is a good sharp and well exposed image. I only felt it slightly flat and I guess it's the old Zenit lens. I did a WS to apply Multi-coating to your lens.
Good work and TFS.

Always a good subject, although to get a good macro, you will have a smell effort.
A very descriptive shot, with good angle, light and distributed colors make a good composition.
I have a really impudicus one, I will post for you :)

When I saw this photo on the thumbnail my immediate thoughts was; "Who is trying to be funny?" Then I noticed the title, and I had a closer look at the thumbnail, and I realized that maybe nature is trying to tell us something (in its own unique way) about how we rape this lovely planet of ours. I've heard the real (natural) item is sometimes called a "violator", and that seems to fit with the message that Janice Dunn (jancie) conveyed with her posting of "Nature at its Worst".
I'm not sure if it is just my monitor, but it seems to be a touch low on saturation & contrast. In my personal opinion I think the workshop by Alain Thibodeau (Athila) underlined this aspect.
Very well done on the composition, DOF, and the "angle" of the note. TFS.
