[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this picture on the same day as my erlier post of mushrooms.. we ( Clack other treknature member and I ) did take a lot of pictures that day.
This is a Amanita muscaria, commonly called fly agaric or less often fly mushroom, is a basidiomycete mushroom of the genus Amanita. The original white-spotted red toadstool, it is one of the most recognizable mushrooms and is widely encountered in popular culture. Though it is generally considered poisonous, Amanita muscaria is otherwise famed for its hallucinogenic properties, which had a religious significance in Siberian culture and possibly ancient India and Scandinavia. Since mediaeval times it has been used as an insecticide, from where it derives its name.

Hello Kristy!
The red is so vivid and crisp in details, it's a pleasure to look at it.
The composition is well balanced, and the DOF works great for the soft background.

Una imagen que derrocha intensos colores, brillos y contrastes Kristy con muy buen foco y agudeza, creando además un desenfoque sobre la parte posterior de la escena.
Me gusta el encuadre elegido y el punto de vista captado con la posibilidad de ver también las hojas marchitas del suelo, muy estéticas por cierto.
Gracias y un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

An image that wastes intense colors, shines and contrasts Kristy with very good focus and sharpness, also creating a out of focus on the background of the scene.
I like the elected framing and the point of view captured with the possibility of also seeing the withered leaves of the floor, very aesthetic by the way.
Thank you and a cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Nice close up shot of the Amanita muscaria. Great colours and sharp details. Nice POV



Hello Kristy,
this is a great fungi shot! Great POV, sharpness, details and very nice colours. This is a very nice composition. Thank you for posting.

Very nice colours, details and light for this imaculate subject. Good composition too.
I would have liked a bigger DOF to get stem and countour on focus, but I understand a minitripod would be necesary, in fact is most useful for mycological photography.
Thanks and regards.

Hi Kristy,
Very well focused shot, great DoF. Great sharpness and very nice details of this fungus, neat blurry BG. Great vivid colors.
Excellent shot.

Hello Kristy !
I have looked for this mushroom in autumn, but I didn't find any - you were luckier than me ! I love the bright colors of your picture, as well as the details and textures on the hat. Also a beautiful composition, a nice blurred BG and an excellent low POV. Very well done !

Hallo Kristy,
Mooie plaat van deze paddestoel. Je hebt hem gefotografeerd op een goed moment; hij ziet er hallucinant mooi uit:-)
Goed gedaan
