I have always liked the mushrooms (in my breakfast) but I had never been able to it appreciates them to this scale, these mushrooms have a diameter that oscillates between the 15 and 20 centimeters, definitively it is a magic effect to contemplate them.

The mushrooms are organisms that lack chlorophyll, the green pigment by means of which the plants use light, it dilutes and dioxide of carbon to produce their own foods; for this reason, to the vegetables they are considered as organisms autótrofos. On the other hand the feeding of the mushrooms is heterótrofa, since these already obtain its nutrients starting from organic matter elaborated. Some species live on dead trunks or another type of nutritious matter, other more ones are parásitas of plants or animals, there are even mushrooms that are parasites of other mushrooms.

The foot mushrooms and hat are very common in our forests, mainly in the rainy season. The great majority of these species has been classified inside the subdivision Basidiomycotina or Basidiomycetes. The structure that we see, is only the fruitful body or carpóforo of the mushroom, where they are the microscopic spores for the reproduction. That that commonly is known as foot it is the estípite and the hat is the pileo whose aspect and coloration can be very varied and attractiveness. In the inferior part of the píleo they are many thin sheets where the spores are located. In fact, the body of the mushroom is inside the sustrato where it lives and it is formed by infinity of small filaments tubular microscopic, called hifas that ramify a lot and whose group is known as micelio.

What a great looking mushroom. Your photo really shows off it's beauty. Is this kind edible? I pick and cook wild mushrooms here in the US . Your note is also very educational.

Hi Ninfa, crack return to TN image, the lighting is very well controled here so many chances for this image to become over exposed an dyet there are only a couple of tiny bit that are .The notes are brilliant.

Hi Ninfa
That is a beautiful tree you are sitting under in your intro page! A very nice picture too. This here is facinating. They look like the belong in the sea, with coral and sponges. Really a unique growth, well exposed and an interesting note too. Well done.
