The shooting

The photograph was taken mid-morning, in forest areas. Given the lighting conditions, unfavorable, the equivalent sensitivity was set at iso-400. The opening was set at f/5.6. The shutter speed was calculated and set at 1 / 56 th of a second.

The photograph shows that the "whites" are generally not "burn".

Bonjour Philippe,
Impressionnée par la qualité de cette image. Les blancs sont parfaits et l'ensemble apparaît preque en trois dimensions. Une note explicative très utile aussi. Le lichen blanc est magnifique par sa forme.
Un grand merci

Hello Philippe,
Once again a beautiful fairytale Fungi. It stands out against the dark tree and makes the presentation even more beautiful. Very well done and tfs.

Bonjour Philippe,

It's always great to see your African photos, my friend. Here you share a new fungus species on TN - paradise for me!

Photographically: you wrote the photograph shows that the "whites" are generally not "burn" - absolutely true. But the photograph also shows you didn't set the focus to the closest square-centimeter of the closest cap - which means most of the closer caps became out of focus and you had to oversharpen them with software. On the other side, everything else is OK, composition- wise a fabulous job for example.

Mycologically: the name you used is an invalid synonym. The current name of the species is Lentinus tuber-regium (Fr.) Fr. You can always search on the current names in Index Fungorum.

Have a great weekend, friendly regards, László

very nice and interesting mushrooms
