Flammulina veluptipes. (Japanese: Enokitake)

Information from MushroomExpert.Com:
[Also known as the "Velvet Foot," or, in the case of desperate mushroomers, the "At Least Something's Out in January" Mushroom, Flammulina velutipes is one of the few mushrooms that can be found in winter...

...Flammulina velutipes is edible. Arora cautions that "the sticky skin should be removed before cooking". Be sure to take a spore print; the rusty-spored, deadly Galerina autumnalis is a potential look-alike!

The "enoki mushroom," also called the "enokitake," is a cultivated form of Flammulina velutipes, and is often found in grocery stores and restaurants. It looks nothing like the "wild" mushroom, however; it is pale, long-stemmed, and tiny-capped.]

Hi Felipe,this is the perfect pic to say "the autumn is coming".What a perfection,what a atmosphere and composition,i like a lot this work so brilliant!Thanks for share,have a nice day,LUCIANO.

Hola Felipe

Gracias por tu comentario.

Vaya colección de setas que tienes, esta en particular ha quedado muy original, con esos tonos bajos de luces y esos brillos en los hongos, parece que esten bañados de aceite, unos brillos muy bien logrados. Perfecta composición y nitidez en todo su contexto.

Un saludo de Antonio

Hello Felipe,
A good photo for the atmosphere here in Holland today. The day started with rain, after that rain and in the evening....rain, whole day long. It's autumn here.
Splendid colours in this photo. Excellent sharpness, composition, low POV and DOF.

Lovely, warm capture taken from a great point of view, Felipe. What a strange glossy finish after the rain. Great natural colors and brilliant composition!

Hi Felipe.
As usual you have shared a wonderful mushroom picture with blameless reproduction of wet surroundings, texture of the mushrooms and dry leaves at a very nice low POV and fine composition. Well done and best wishes.

Hi Felipe & Cristina,
A lovely capture of these beautiful mushrooms. Very well composed shot with great sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hallo Felipe
Another great capture with very good depth of field, sharpness and colours. I'd sure love to see you at work sometime, crawling around, camera gear in your hand. You make these mushrooms look like giants. The hood with its shiny, wet appearance looks as if it was dipped into caramel sauce. Thanks for sharing a great image. Best regards.

Hello Felipe Mateo and Cristina ,
a very special macro shot of these fungi. The slimy and shiny elements is so well seen. It gives such pleasant view.
The fungi really stand out on the dark and grey surroundings.
Well done.
