Another shot of mushrooms growing on the sleepers.
Some info about facts used my mushroom hunters that can lead to a bad experience or somethin worse.

Edible vs. Poisonous-True or False

Poisonous mushrooms tarnish a silver spoon. False
If it peels, you can eat it. False
All mushrooms growing on wood are edible. False
Mushrooms that squirrels or other animals east are safe for humans. False
All mushrooms in meadows and pastures are safe to eat. False
All white mushrooms are safe. False
Poisonous mushrooms can be detoxified by parboiling, drying or pickling. False

Collecting Wild Mushrooms

Be sure of your identification-eat only kinds known to be edible.
Do not eat mushrooms raw.
Eat only mushrooms in good condition.
Eat only one kind at a time and do not eat large amounts.
Eat only a small amount the first time; even morels, generally considered to be excellent, may cause illness in some persons.
Don't experiment. There is an old saying, "There are old mushroom hunters, and bold mushroom hunters, but there are no old, bold mushroom hunters."
Obtain a copy of one or more books or publications on mushrooms and/or join a mushroom club.

I found this info HERE

Hope you like!

Hola Felipe,
Otra muy estudiada composición que hace atractivos estos motivos tan simples. En esta ocasión me quedo con la gana de ver un poquito mejor el fondo que parece bonito, pero esto si que es una cuestión personal y a lo mejor la foto resulta peor.
Un saludo!

Great shot, really detailed and colorful.
Nice light and POV.
Well done.

Hi Felipe !
I LOVE this shot ! Awesome composition and POV, and a wonderful BG showing a nice landscape. Details, colors and DOF are perfect. These mushrooms look old, and they are so beautiful. Very well done !

And this picture shows how important is good light. Without sunlight it has very sad mood. By the way - so much green in December - Trazo must be superb place to live.

Hey Felipe this is an awesome capture of these shroons, it feels mystical and the capture as been well executed. The mushrooms coming out of the stump really make this an exciting image, especially on the nice soft background. I was down in Peru and just got back, I think you would love the rainforest as there are all kinds of cool fungi growing everywhere. :)

Excellent POV Felipe and Cristina!
They looks like small "beach tents"!
Very good DOF and deails!
5* and TFS!

I missed this one, but glad I went and had a look at your gallery.
In my opinion, the Sony takes better fungi shots, I'm glad you didn't sell it.
This is a stunning composition. Almost a 3D effect, great sharpness and DOF. Brilliant POV as usual. Excellent work.
cheers, Chris

Brilliant shot of You as always, brilliant note of You as always. A pity I don't know which specie it is. But the composition's elegant as a lady (in most of the cases...).
Gracias, saludos, László
