Amanita citrina.

Info from mushroomexpert.com:

"This Amanita is recognized by its pale yellow to pale green colors, its abrupt basal bulb, and the faintly potato-like smell of the fresh gills...It is mycorrhizal with hardwoods and conifers. One often finds faded specimens of Amanita citrina, and in this state they are reminiscent of the Destroying Angels--but those deadly mushrooms are pure white through all stages of development, and have more prominent, sack-like volvas."

Hope you like!

The central composition works really here. Excellent low pov (you must get incredibly messy) and dof.
And the spider is a nice touch ;-)
Thanks for posting.

Hi Felipe!

Amazing photo of fungi. It's absolutely great!

A really cool formation of a shroon that is nicely exposed and well framed. :)

Great picture of spider Felipe ;-))) Yes, now I see - there is fungus also :-) Excellent as always my friend - sharp, with superb DOF and POV. Another candidate to publish in your Spanish Wild Mushrooms Magazine!

Hi Felipe, Hello Felipe, likes I your mushroom, but eat..... NO!!!!! I love my life. This mushroom is very poisonous! (Amanita - Danger!!!)
Your picture is fantastic, very good capture here, very good details, sharpness and natural colours and great POV. The crawling animal on the sheath is a small crab spider.
Excellent! Thanks for posting Felipe.

Great shot as always Felipe. Love the POV, DOF and central composition. The crab spider is a nice addition.

Hi Felipe,
This has remarkable detail! Very sharp down to the water droplets and tiny spider at the base. Great composition and framing. Another amazing shot!

Que fotografia tan bonita, es impresionante el tamaņo del huevo de esta amanita, es mas grande que el sombrero.
Las tonalidades son excelentes y el detalle de la araņita es el broche de oro.
Un encuadre impactante, estupendo trabajo.
Saludos de circe.

Very interesting shape.....(ahum) ;-)

Great sharpness and detail though and the spider adds that little extra that makes it a very good image. Wonderfull!
