[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I think this is a Hypholoma Sublateritium also called the The Chestnut Mushroom

This one is another from the Genus Hypholoma, a very near relative to this one I published some days ago.

Edibility: Inedible for humans, because of its sour taste, although it has a very good smell. I am sure it is not sour for other species, as almost every one I found is eaten by some insect, bird or whatever.
Cap Color: Red-orange, Cap Diameter 6.5 ± 3.5 cm, Cap Shape CONVEX
Flesh Color: Light yellow
Fruiting Patterns GROUP
Gill Length RANDOM, Gill/Pore Color: Grey 80 - olive brown, Gill/Pore Shape ADNATE, Gill/Pore Spacing CROWDED
Hymenium Type GILL
Seasons AUTUMN
Spore Color: Purple brown
Stem Color: sandy brown, Stem Diameter 0.85 ± 0.35 cm, Stem Height 11.5 ± 6.5 cm

Hope you like!

Parece una imagen familiar... papá, mamá y el bebé al pie de ellos... jejeje.
La composicion en este caso es excelente, por la flora que se encuentra entorno a los hongos tan bonita y atractiva como ellos mismos.
Bellos colores, marcadas texturas y excelente perspectiva y encuadre, completan una presentacion redonda.

Je ne le connaissais pas ce champignon. C'est intéressant de le découvrir grâce à cette photo de qualité où on le voit en 3 tailles...
Well done !

Hi Felipe
You have wonderful mushrooms in your "backyard" this one has lovely colours, and the setting reminds me of Christmas, why I don't know, because ours are warm and not SO green. Well done.

Very nice job Felipe, Love the compositon & the way the surrounding vegetation fills the frame around your subject. This is what makes this one great. The tones & textures are fantastic & the angle of the shot is perfect! Enough said..Great job here!!
