Salut Christian,
Un champignon bien connu et effectivement excellent consommé jeune, à condition de s'abstenir de boisson alcoolisée pendant ou après le repas. Le montage est bien réalisé, ce qui en fait un document très instructif, idéal pour TN. Comme à l'habitude, on retrouve des photos claires et très agréables à l'oeuil, bien contrastées et avec des couleurs vives. Excellent travail, encadrement compris.

Christian bonsoir,que voila de beaux coprins à differents stades de maturité !! Je mangerais volontier celui de gauche, uniquement celui ci!! Le rendu blanc laiteux est superbe. Meilleur santé et bonne nuit. Didier.

Hi Christian,
This is an excellent presentation! All three photos are excellent and would be great on their own. The colors and detail look perfect to me. A great job here!

Very, very, very good picture !!! I very like compositions from several photos compound :) I know these mushrooms - grows in forest behind house of my mother. Inhabitants of these villages assemble them and eat, when the mushrooms are young. Supposedly, they are tasty, but not allowed to eat this mushrooms and drinking alcohol - it can finish not well.
I did not test personally :)))
Greetings from Poland !!!

Salut Christian,

Bon matin Christian,
Très beau montage et note appropriée, vous pourriez produire un guide sur les champignons sauvages avec toute vos photographies ! j'aime la belle lumière sur les coprins et les douces couleurs. Je prends une pose sur TN pour un moment le temps de me refaire quelques photographies nature...

Great shots, Christian. Do you know that Coprinus when eaten and supplemented by alcohol is halucynogenic!? And dangerous at the same time. Greetings from Poland, Michal
P.S. Smiley later :-)

This is a very nice capture, Christian. Sorry I have no time for a proper critique.

WOWOWOW I missed this one. Fantastic document my friend. Another for my favourites! Thats all I will say.

PD: This is my favourite edible. They are just delicious!

Hi Christian
