[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a Cantharellus cibarius a very sought after mushroom with excellent taste and aroma.

I decided to post this one because of the size of the specimen. Normally they do not grow that much - maybe because they are picked up when younger.

This probably the most sold mushroom in Finnish markets.

Hello Shir, What a beautifull Mushroom , good compositie colours . and details , so big I never seen before , tfs Greetings Teunie .

"maybe because they are picked up when younger"... you are wright, MF. I have also seen espectacular ones, but in hidden places were people do not find it :)
Por cierto, me encanta su olor a albaricoque, y están realmente sabrosos de todas las maneras, pero salteados en una sarten con un poco de aceite y ajo, y añadido en un arroz en blanco con nueces quedan muy finos :)
Teneis suerte de disponer de ellos en mercados, aqui sólo se encuentran en temporada y en tiendas especializadas. En supermercados frescas, solo suele haber Pleorotus ostreatus y Agaricus o champiñones.
Bonita foto, con gran saturación de colores y una composición muy bonita. Supongo que te habras torcido el cuello bastante para conseguir esta toma con la reflex :)
Gracias y un abrazo, Felipe.

Hola Shir,
Precioso ejemplar de Cantharellus, con ese color y textura tan apetitosa dan ganas de comerlos. Saludos
