Flammulina veluptipes. (Japanese: Enokitake)


Can any one say that mushrooms do not have beautiful names? Flammulina veluptipes, it sounds sofisticated.

I took this ones in a hurry, just 4 shots and go... I had people waiting for me. When I looked at the result at home I was surprised, hope you like them too.

Information from MushroomExpert.Com:
[Also known as the "Velvet Foot," or, in the case of desperate mushroomers, the "At Least Something's Out in January" Mushroom, Flammulina velutipes is one of the few mushrooms that can be found in winter...

- As you can see, I am one of those desperate winter mushroom hunter :DDD

...Flammulina velutipes is edible. Arora cautions that "the sticky skin should be removed before cooking". Be sure to take a spore print; the rusty-spored, deadly Galerina autumnalis is a potential look-alike!

The "enoki mushroom," also called the "enokitake," is a cultivated form of Flammulina velutipes, and is often found in grocery stores and restaurants. It looks nothing like the "wild" mushroom, however; it is pale, long-stemmed, and tiny-capped.]

Felipe, this is marvellous, the POV and composition are very strong points. Excellent image.

I'm astonish with the beauty of this picture.
Simply spectacular. Congratulations!!!!

There is no doubt Felipe you really are the best at these kind of shots. Excellent POV and composition and the light and details are just perfect. A beautiful capture...well done.

Felipe. Great shot! great POV, light, detail & composition with your usual high standard of quality..I pulled up your camera to check it out...Wanted to see what it looked like and the specs...The silver body looks cool & the 10X must come in handy.. Anyway, Well done!!

Just like art Felipe,
the composition is fantastic, even as the details and the fantastic light, the colours are good, and the note is great, very good job

Felipe, very arty shot! Fungi looks like chineese umbrellas, I love its texture and colours. But composition made the picture. I love those kind of surprise - you took few photos when you are going to work or meeting and after transfering to pc you can see masterpiece.

Hi Felipe,

I disagree with you today. I would not call my first born "Flammulina veluptipes". :)

It's another brilliant photo. I like the fact that the light fungi sprouts from the dark right corner. Well done.

I can't remember, have you included the spore print technique in a previous post?

Great sharpness for this shot, a pity that the light isn't very good on the bottom.
Well done.

Felipe, this is a real beauty. Very artistic and at the same time, very informative for fungi experts! Great composition and beautiful colors. And your WS showing a side view is a great plus. Very useful note too. (I do like the dark parts too :)

The WS is a classical view and this picture is an Extramundi view.
Yes, a very sofisticated name: Flammulina veluptipes. I like to say it. These latin names sounds very evocative some times.
Your photo honours its name which calls the respect and the admiration.
Thanks Felipe.

Great picture Felipe
Very sharp great composition and POV.
Excellent work.

El punto de vista es estupendo, así como la composición y la luz, tanto de las setas como del fondo.

Felipe, hace falta creatividad y habilidad para fotografiar desde abajo una seta! Queda muy bonita la seta desde abajo.

Hi Felipe,
A short comment, only a songtitle: Wonderland Again. Thanx, László
