Do not stop at rock-pools and flowers as you are very talented with mushrooms too.

Great this lovely shot of Russula emetica!
Details,colors and light are excellent!
I wish I had more time.
So simple, yet so beautiful. The contrast between red and off-white works wonders. The detail is beautiful, especially the texture under the hood. I am just wondering where the fairies and elves where hiding while you where photographing their home? Kind regards and thanks for sharing.

Hey! ... beautiful fungus! almost said "watch me" when I see it in the gallery TN!
I like the color and the eloquent POV. Doing this with f/8 you've created a beautiful combination of layers of focus. Good cut. It is a very attractive picture to the eye. Very weel done!
Regards, TFS, Jesús
The red color is in general a warning not eat them, even after cooking:-)! An interesting picture, well taken with a good low point of view and a pleasant composition. The white part is a little bit overexposed, but just slightly. I look forward to see other pictures.
Thanks also for your kind words on my Argynnis butterfly.
First of all welcome to the "Fungi Club" of TrekNature, and of course to the whole site! Your photo's fantastic, beautiful playing with lights and shadows, gorgeous colors and excellent sharpness. If I can give an advice, don't be afraid of using a scissor to remove the grass-blades from between the lens and the photographed subject - the photo becomes more effective this way. But as a start, this is a bombastic pic. Bravo.
As You know, there are countless species in the genus Russula, proper ID specification's often impossible without microscopical analysation. The genera's divided to 7 sections, from which Your photographed specimen surely belongs to the section Russula, but I think it isn't R. emetica, because that species only lives in pine forests (having mycorrhizal connection only with conifers), on very acid soil, and there's another kind of leave (beech?) on Your photo in the foreground. The species on Your pic is most probably Russula nobilis Velen., a very closed relative of R. emetica, living in broadleaved forests (mainly under beech - Fagus silvatica), causing the same gastrointestinal troubles after eating. Some other, closed relatives are Russula betularum Hora and Russula silvestris (Singer) Reumaux, but both have a bit paler cap color than visible on Your photo.
Thanx for sharing this beautiful photo, best regards from Hungary, László

Fungi's have I also much photographed en on TN.
Russula's are extremely difficult to determinate and i see Laszlo are writing it all, we are both experts here on tn and Laszlo even better than I am.
Good pov with fine colours and light.

I like the contrasts between the different colours - white / red and even the green. The photo is well balanced and the sharpness is good.
