Hi Jan, I haven't seen these creamy coloured Amanitas before - only the attractive red spotted ones.
And they are an attractive looking poisonous fungi too, the shape is quite eye-catching. Good composition from down low on the ground. Well done
Great shot of the amanitas. Wonderful colours (saturation just-so, not too much, not too less), perfect POV and compo. A photo must be proud of. I bookmark it.
Greetings from Hungary, László
Excellent shot! Very good light and details-
This beauty is responsible for the dead of many irresponsible mushroom hunters.
