An unindentified white mushroom.
I believe it to be a boletus but I am not 100% sure - any help is appreciated :-)

Berries in the picture are lingonberries - go well with Elk or Reindeer meat.

Hello Shir!
Very nice close up.DOF,vivid colors,POV and composition are wonderful.Top of mushroom is a little overexposed but not disturbing.I liked this work a lot.TFS...:-)

Hi Shir,
This is indeed one of the boletus these are generally mycorrhizal fungi therefor near by will be its associated tree. Did you happen to notice what trees were near by? I wonder if its one of the Leccinum.

Wonderful detail on the stipe but the cap looks a little burnt out. You often need a reflector or remote held fill flash to get some light under the cap or you end up with a dark spot.

Hi Shir, I like how this is all sharp all over. Good capture. And the white stalk goes so well against the loganberry tree. It is quite an attractive scene. Well done.

What a nice composition ! For me it is pleasant the green environment with red berries. Colors and sharpness are good. Just the cap seems a bit over-exposed.
I will look for ID... Thanks for sharing Shir

Great picture!
Beautiful composition, very nice colour.

Excellent composition and perfect POV and DOF. The caps are slightly burnt out (over exposed), but its not to bad. great contrast with the green and reds. Nice one.
