[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The rain keeps on coming in the evening and at night . I could guess that there would be fungi sprouting somewhere. Might be in the field, at the rotten trunks and also at the soft earth mounds.
But I failed again as I realised that this fungus grows on the tree trunk about one metre high above my head.
It simply sprout out from the crevice of the rugged trunk. How exciting to note this very soft and brittle fungus.
It gives a transluscent view from under.

Hello Foozi,
The lighting through the gills of this fungus is superb! The composition, POV and sharpness also contribute to a fine image of it growing on the rotten tree trunk.
A good way of using the rainy season!
Thanks and all the best,

Slav Foozî,
An another great capture from you.TFS.

Hi Foozi,

an nice pov on this fungi.
It looks on a fungi that I have been posted in 2008.
Good details and clarity colours.


Hi Foozi,

Another lovely capture of the mushroom!
The light passing through the semi-permeable mushroom makes it a gorgeous shot. Among other qualities, superb sharpness and wonderfully chosen POV are praiseworthy. The contrast between the light colors of the mushroom to the blurred green BG is nice.
Well seen!

thanks and regards,
Paras Bhalla

Hi MF Foozi,

Delightful capture of this mushroom from an atractive POV with excellent clarity, warm colours, details and fine composition.
TFS and cheers,


Hi Foozi,
Excellent picture with very clear details and colors..Nice composition...TFS.

Hi Foozi,

It is to bad the weather was not sunny. Rain is good for fungi, it is coming out. The close-up view is showing the details and colors of the fungi. The green leaves are framing the fungi. have a nice day.


amazing mushroom, TFS Ori

hello Foozi
nice composition with good details and good light
great shot
greeting lou

Hi Foozi again,

Another treasure in Your collection. Fantastic POV, sharpness and exposure. You became one of the best fungi photographers on TN, no doubt. So, no excuse for me today, I have to search in my archives to find something, because Your images are wonderful, and we all see how much You improved as a photographer. Congrats and tfs.

ID: Your specie reminds me to our Oudemansiella mucida, the Porcelain Fungus (see an old image of me here), except for the lack of ring on the stem. But the genus seems the same, although I don't know the exact specie, unfortunately.

Best wishes, László

Ciao Foozi, fantastic light on beautiful fungi, I like a lot, ciao Silvio
