Dear TNers,

I break my "In The Virgin Forest" series again, but not with that photo I thought, because there's some fresh shots. What You see here is Coprinellus domesticus, the Firerug Inkcap (synonym: Coprinus domesticus) - the first time on TN, at least I didn't find any image of it. Quite common in Hungary, even in city parks; growing on or very closed to rotting broadleaved. Not edible. I photographed it in the park named "NÚpkert" ("People's Garden"), where I used to go with my children each day, and where I detected at least 30 fungi species 'til now. Our spring was very dry, there wasn't raining in April at all for example, but on this week rain came, there was water from the sky each day (today also included), so the first early summer fungi like this specie and common Psathyrellas (P. candolleana and P. piluliformis) already came. I'm extremely happy, because in this year I didn't detect any fungi in the park if we don't count perennial tinders (bracket fungi).

Photo: taken a few hours ago. Very slight smart sharpen on the fruitbodies, very small gamma correction, also very small dose of gaussian blur on the background.

I'm glad I can share this pic of a very common (here at least) specie with You for the first time on TrekNature. I hope You also like the image, thanx for looking and reading.

All the best! Have a great night time:!


Wonderful details in this photo Laszlo, excellent brightness and good management at a difficult angle of incidence light. Thanks for the add detail on the gamma correction, it helps to understand the color and the "relevance" very successful, the mushrooms in the foreground. Well done friend!

hello Laszlo,
I don't know anything about fungis, but can appreciate this beautiful picture of a never shown species, which is also a new document for our archives. What I appreciate the most is the light you caught, it makes the fungis almost shine. Very well done and composed. I have dedicated you my last Southern Festoun picture, if you haven't seen it. Don't feel obliged to give some points.
Have a nice day
Kind regards

Hi Laszlo

A fine shot of this emerging beauty. Great composition and sharpness. Great work my friend.

Hello Laszlo!

This is very funny coincidence because I took picture of this specie yesterday :-) I'll send it soon, maybe as second one on TN :-)

Your shot is very well composed with two fresh fungi and interesting BG. Great sharpness and details on both fungi. With 30 species of fungi NÚpkert is far better than our Botanic Garden. I hope you'll send more pictures from this place.

Congratulations and best regards my friend!

Hello Laszlo,
Congratulations on this fungal first on TN!
A very fine capture of this common Ink-cap species taken from a good POV with excellent technical qualities that include fine lighting. The BG is not the best but that can't be helped and the composition is just right for this POV of the two.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

PS thanks for your visit and kind critique!

Ciao Ladislao, congratulations for your first on TN, beautiful couple of strange fungi, I never see before, splendid light and colors, wonderful sharpness and fine details, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hi MF Laszlo,
excellent depiction of these lovely fungi. the sprinkled dots on its head is so unique and special.
nice reading your notes.
you have exploited the light very well here, the details are so seen and also shown.


Hi Laszlo,

A good, clear, nicely composed image, very nice.

An interesting little mushroom, essentially identical to Coprinus radians, apparently differing only in the size of the spores, but I don't know if you have that species where you are. I've seen one of those two here also, not sure which one it was, as I didn't have any way of measuring the size of the spores, but I believe that the common one here is C. radians, so I've tentatively put that name on the one I photographed.
