My 1st mushroom post. Hope everybody enjoys it.

Many Many Thanks to Laszlo (Hormon_Manyer) for the ID.

Lepiota is a genus of gilled mushrooms, in the order Agaricales. Though they have white spores, they are related to the familiar brown spored mushrooms of the genus Agaricus. They typically have rings on the stems, which in larger species are detachable and glide up and down the stem. The cap usually has scales: the colours of the cap, gills and scales are important in determining the exact species, as is sometimes the smell.

Hello Haraprasan,
A fine sharp portrait of a mushroom taken from a fine POV to show its features with good light management. It reminds me of our edible species that are quite delicious but there are also similar species that are deadly poisonous.
I can't give you the ID though.
Thanks and all the best,

Hello Haraprasan,
Congratulations on your first fungus!! A very fine capture showing beautiful details of this fungus although I would guess it is poisonous. Good light and colours against a dark background.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Haraprasan,

Excellent photo of this beautiful mushroom.
Light,focus and sharpness are fantastic.
Good composition.

Hi Haraprasan,

Wonderful shot showing a beautiful lepiotoid fungi. Great exposure, colors. Your first fungal shot, but a professional one. Bravo.

About the ID: as said, this is without doubt a Lepiotoida, either from Chlorophyllum, Macrolepiota, Leucoagaricus or Chlorolepiota genus, but it's impossible to give a full ID specification without knowing if the flesh changed to red after cutting etc.

Tfs this beauty, have a nice day, László

Hello Haraprasan, wonderful close-up shot of a mushroom with nice composition.
TFS and regards,

Luz justa pero muy efectiva Haraprasan. Angulo al límite por lo cerca que está del motivo y aún así, el hongo captado con eficacia.

Hi Haraprasan,
you surely have a lot of beautiful subjects in this page.
such a lovely and natural presentation of the fungi.
i like the texture and the top, so lovely and look like an edible piece.
nice colour contrast with the wet ground.


hello Haraprasan
super fungi
good details and light
great sharpness i like this fungi
greeting lou

Hello HP,
This is unique specimen & rarely seen around. Thanks for sharing and making us know about it.

Dear Haraprasan,
Laszlo will be delighted to see another member also posting Fungi.

I like your photo because it presents a ""fresh"" mushroom i.e. the ground is still broken, where the fungus broke through the soil.

It is an intriguing image: the white tou tou (like a ballerina) on the bottom and on top like tiny fungi... do you happen to know what the little bits are? Are these the scales?

I guess, you were kneeling on the ground in order to achieve this view of the ground and at the same time include the top! How tall was the whole fungus?

A nice clean presentation with natural colours.

Have a nice evening,
Greetings from South Africa
