[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This year is excellent for mushrooms in Finnish forests. They are now everywhere - a lot of rain and warm temperatures are the favorable factors.

I am not sure about the exact ID of these Rusulas, however, they really wanted their picture taken!

Hello Shir,
Really...a very good one through its point of view, sharpness, depth of field, composition and light.

Una macro genial.
Buenos colores y excelentes detalles.
Perfecto encuadre...sólo faltan los Elfos...
Saludos, JL.

Hello Shir
This is a lovely picture with a tight dof..the framing and colours are superb..the mosses in thier greens really do look damp and moist.

  • Great

Hello Shir,

Very nice macro shot, what a nice mushroom with fantastic colours and very well composition. My compliments for this one.

Best regards,

Good shot Shir
Great texture on the stems
Good POV and DF
Good sharpness and good long exposure


Hi Shir,
It is Russula foetens (haisuhapero). You know it immediately from the distinctly tuberculate-striate margin of the cap and strongly mucous cap cuticle. The photo is an excellent identification photo of the species.
Regards, Pentti
PS. Didn't you hear any Cranes from the sky? We saw way over 6000 of those in Pori.

Hi Shir,
Not sure if they look tasty or not.....the one on the left seems to be topped with maple syrup or honey but the other looksa little less attractive!!Wonderful detail and the colour is just perfect.You must again thank that friend that recommended that you finally buy a MACRO LENS!!!Great stuff.....don't let it go to your head!!
Regards, David

Hello Shir,
Very nice macro with wonderful colours, DOF and sharpness. There's one mistake though: RUSSULA, with two "S", not one. With or without 2 "S", it's an excellent compo. Congrats and tfs. Regards from Hungary, László
