This looks 3D ready for picking... or better not. Wonderful colors and sheen. Great shot.

Hallo felipe , wat een bijzondere paddestoel , ik heb er veel gezien maar dit is een beauty ,haal apart ,en een mooie achtergrond goed gedaan ,groeten Teunie .

Nobody gets fed-up with looking at good photo's and this looks particularly good the detail especially of the slime over the cap is well captured. Well done and TFS yours Robert
PS how do you get your 717 to stop exposure compensating in manual mode?

Hola Felipe y Cristina
felicitaciones por la 200ª foto, y muy bella la que has elegido. Perfectos detalles y colores; me gustan mucho también los reflejos del agua o eso me parece.
Impresionante la variedad de hongos que hay en España.

Felipe, I don't think I could ever become bored of your "fungui shots"...;-)
You have opened my eyes to this aspect of nature in a way I could have never imagined!
Every fungui shot I have seen you produce so far as been a serious visual delight!
Your talent is exceptional and a real pleasure to view!
This remarkable and beautiful shot is no exception!

Well Felipe, I can see that you a master on mushrooms!
Wonderful the "bright" at the top of the mushroom!
Your camera is very good, but you handle it as a pro!

Hola Felipe y Cristina
It looks like you've already put a jelly glaze over it all ready to be cooked. Pretty legs too.
No, I do enjoy seeing your fungi Felipe, and I had never realised that there were so many different types and colours. You have taught and given pleasure to so many of us - keep 'em coming!

Hi Felipe,
First, congrats on the 200th. You choosed well the post, for I think you are the best mushrooms photographer to active participate on TN.
I'll go with your identification, amid the fact that there are two or three very similar in colours and shape Cortinarius species, some of them couldn't be told apart without specific chemical reagent identification.
I met last autumn a specie looking similar with this but couldn't 100% identifu it too.

Regards, Petru

Felicitaciones Felipe and Cristina!!!

Master picture for special occasion! This one looks almost like painting [brown BG] combined with ultraclear and ultradetailed photography - main subject. It doesn't looks tasty, but for sure looks very nice and interesting. Violet colours on its lower part are alien ;-) Great 200th post my friend!

Congratulations on your 200th posting, Felipe!!!

Another excellent fungi for us to enjoy, never boring sir...

Great details, exposure, colors, and shiny slime look ;-)

Great job and thank you!

Looking forward to the next 200...

Hola Felipe,
Not bored at all with fungi shots !!

Frame is very nice as well.
Is it edible?

Hola Felipe the photo of this fungui is so wonderful sharp and colours are so beautiful thanks Felipe regards Stavros

I am never bored with your fungi shots, they are always so beautiful .
This one is no exception, the textuure of this one is very pleasing and the exposure of the cap is jsut stunning.
Informative note too.
Congratulations on 200, hope to see another 200 in the future.

Your fungi shots inspire me to try and do better with my own. They've also inspired me to notice these wonderfully interesting "guys" in nature that I had in the past ignored. I never realized how beautiful they can be. I love the glossy look on the top and the purple color, excellent work as usual!
