[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
A "mushroom" that I found at the edge of a rural highway. Seemingly it is a common one. So much that there was at this pasture more than a dozen of them.
However even in research in the internet didn't get to classify it!!!
I ask help to fungiman and to extramundi He... He...
A little more distant gives to see another copy.
I positioned the camera in such a way to be against the sky that was very beautiful.
I like the picture. Your opinion will be very important.
Thank you!

ET - Seemingly, as Clive said (fungiman) it is a Lepiota! Really in the research that I accomplished, after this information, it is very similar..

Good POV. You managed to do something different. I like the background, it all adds to the beauty.

Common mushroom or not, you have made it into a work of art. Excellent composition Jose, especially against the skyline. Very sharp and clear. Well done.

Sorry I cant help with the species but the genus is likely to be a Lepiota. Interesting POV

Very attractive perspective with good POV and DOF. I like it a lot.

Muito boa macro, excelente foto. Detalhes, nitidez, cor e composição (contra o céu)

Great shot. That fungi looks huge! Very good job getting low enough to put the cap in the sky to make it stick out. I would haev maybe tried to get to the right of it more to get that hill on the right side out of the shot. There might have been something on the left side, but if not, I would have tried that to give more room on the right underneath the cap like there is on the left. But I am just being picky ;) Also, a boost in the contrast mightjust give it some more snap. I did a workshop to show that.

Interessante o ângulo que você fotografou, acredito que a câmera estava no chão. Bem nitida e com uma composição muito boa. Eu teria "apagado" aquela nuvenzinha acima e a esquerda, nada que prejudique.

Hola Jose Reynaldo, non vira esta imaxe ata o de agora que a vin na portada de TN :)
Gosto moito da paisaxe e das cores.
Coma dixo Clive, seguro que e unha Lepiota, o caso e que sin saber a cor das laminas, coma e o pe, etx, non e doado.
Bo trabahlo, saudos.

Olá José Reynaldo,
Wonderful photo, well chosen background, although there's a little overexposure. But the scene's fantastic. Tfs.
The fungus is without doubt a lepiotoida, but it can't belong to Lepiota genus, because species of that genera are much, much smaller. This is a Macrolepiota, very probably M. excoriata or something else very similar.
Best wishesw from Hungary, László
