[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this mushroom got its name from the latin word rubescens which means changing the color to red. In our country we call it Biserka-(a girls name).When the mushroom is damaged the meat starts to turn red. This mushroom can be found in every type of forests especially near rivers. this type of mushroom is edible , but the skin of the cap must be removed and it has to boiled in water over 70 degrees Celsius.

Hi Vasko again,
Technically OK with great white balance and colors, nice sharpness - but the central composition became static and a bit boring. The point of view isn't the best either by my opinion. However, the note is great. This species is common everywhere, living in mycorrhiza connection with deciduous trees (oak, beech, hornbeam, sweet chestnut, hazel) or conifers. I don't used to remove the cap skin but never had any health problems after eating it. This species has thermolabilic toxins, which means cooking or baking completely remove them from the mushroom.
Best regards, László
