[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I think this is a kind of Coprinus, I am not sure but the texture of the cap looks like it.

It is difficult to know, as this one is very young and imaculate (only 5 Cm. high), and does not have a clue of the hight, shape or coloration. There were no elder ones around, so I cant be sure.

What I liked from this, is that remembers me very much a nuclear explosion.

As I dont have much things to explain about it, today some cultural stuff.

When people think about Spain, they usually think about sun, beach, good weather and high temperatures (appart from flamenco and bull fighting), but as you can see from my posts in the north we have a rainy, mosty and cool atlantic weather, similar to Great Britain or to the west of France. This gives us beautiful forests, and plenty of mushrooms. Also our culture is different, in fact Galicia (Gallaecia), the region where I live, is called the seventh celtic region. We have celtic roots, to give an example our tradicional instrument is the bagpipe and not the spanish guitar. :)

Hope you like.

Este se parece bastante al Planetario que existe en Buenos Aires.
El texturado de esta planta (hasta tanto no te creen la categoria como pediste), es maravilloso.
Muy buena composicion general asi como tus acostumbradas notas.

A nice shot.
Very impressive detail and texture.
Excellent,very well done.

Very good Fillipe, a little over bright in the top left of the dome but otherwise spot on.I would say the ident is about right but not near my books to check. I like the notes too good to know about your region.

And the hit's just keep on comming.. Nice one Felipe I think after completions of the series you could do a book maybe. :)

This a great capture. The whites is great and the DOF very good. The very good sharpness also needs a mention.

Very well gatured and thanks for posting

Your photographer's note is very educational, I had no idea about Spain's "Celtic Region".

Thank you.
