Riggers' pic looks like a lot of false chanterelle, which are 'of no edible value', but Mal's looks very like a macrolepiota, parasol, which is good eating indeed.

Nicknack has a picture of a shaggy ink cap (the white one) which is also good eating BEFORE it gets to that stage.

Sakvatore, the shaggy parasol is edible, but can cause stomach upsetsin some people. Don't eat it raw. Mal's pictures, I think, show ordinary parasols. Differences are that the ordinary one, which is better eating, has a patterned stipe (stem) while old shaggy has a plain one, and the shaggy bruises reddish when you break the flesh.

As it happens, by the time I'd had put the photo on flickr, had its id confirmed and returned next day to where I'd seen it, I was too late - someone else had harvested it. Whether I would have dared to eat it (i.e. trust what I'd been told on the internet), I don't know.

Don't know what these are. They've taken over the end of a fallen tree in a damp corner of the forest.
[Ed. A bit of googling suggests Sulphur Tuft, aka Clustered Woodlover. 'The "Sulphur Tuft" is bitter and poisonous; consuming it can cause vomiting, diarrhea and convulsions.']

Title: Re: Fungi
Post by: Steph on December 18, 2011, 05:27:04 pm
Sulphur tuft tends to be a bit more colourful. The shaggy one could be eithe rink cap or parasol in that view. If paeasol, a woody stem, and once the stem (stipe) reaches full height the cap is spherical before opening. The ink cap is more like one of those sausage balloons they blow up to make 'animals' with.

Title: Re: Fungi
Post by: Steph on December 22, 2011, 11:19:35 pm
If that is the underside, and the stem has a sort of filigree pattern, and no reddish bruising, it's a parasol.
Title: Re: Fungi
Post by: Salvatore on December 22, 2011, 11:34:57 pm
It's not the one I photographed a few days ago.

Here is a different view. There's a dip in the middle, not obvious from this photo.

(http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7170/6556451685_262e988c9c_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner/6556451685/)

As for the parasol/ink cap in my earlier photo, I went the following day to see if it was opening, and it was in pieces, as if someone had smashed it with a stick.
Title: Re: Fungi
Post by: Steph on December 22, 2011, 11:39:26 pm
That looks like a lactarius of some kind. Not got my book out at the moment, but the central dip is common in that genus. Not usually nice to eat. The gills you photographed, with their depth, would be a good hint of how a parasol looks if white.

The first one is a very common birch tree bracket. Absolutely inedible. Will be hard in texture with an almost smooth underneath.

The bottom one  (the top two are the same thing I think but are different examples) is on Oak IIRC.

Initial research suggests ganoderma applanatum - artist's conch. can anyone confirm or correct this?

I've had an OK few weeks up here.  I've got over a kilo of dried porcini stored away and half of this haul was popped into the freezer. In addition I've got about 5kg of Chanterelles in the freezer plus a load of dried Bay bolete and Slipper Jack.

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b176/Riggers_1956/NrSteyning.jpg)
Apparently, according to my resident expert, they are more likely to be coprinus mycaceous or glistening ink caps because sulphur tufts are yellow and grow in tufts, these look more brown and look to have a more trooping habit. They also look to have a reddish patch on the top of the cap, which sulphur tufts don't have.

And this is Mycenae inclinata, normally found on oak or sweet chestnut.  Apparently.

I have to say Sarah's pics are exceptional - much better than the snaps on the BBC. I'm guessing a diffused flash of some sort with your really nice macro lens. ANy chance of some photo tips or do we have to do the workshop in the woods?

Post by: docsquid on December 19, 2012, 05:23:03 pm
Oops, only just picked up David's comment. Thank you! 

All taken with natural light. I very rarely use flash as it tends to look false no matter what you do with it. I do have ring flash available but don't like the effect. So I kind of look for fungi with nice lighting, then line up a good composition and then take the picture, always bearing in mind what the final result will look like.

I know I could lug a full lighting rig round the woods but a) there is no power, b) it is a faff and c) IMHO nothing compares to natural light anyway.

The 5D3 does exceptionally well at high ISO and looks virtually noise free even at ISO 12500 and above, so rarely need flash anyway.

What is your postprocessing for these? I'd guess they are not straight out of the camera (the contrast is too low between the shadows and the lighting looks to be selectively modified in post - dodging and burning)

Not to mention the advantage of a fantastic macro lens.

Post by: docsquid on December 20, 2012, 09:34:43 pm
David, I usually use Lightroom. Most of these just have a little tweaking of the histogram using the curve function. The earth star is converted to monochrome and given a slight split tone. The latter one I used one of the creative filters that comes with LR and then tweaked it a bit. I can't remember exactly which one it was.

I just try and make the picture give me the feeling I got when I saw the original. The patterns of colours, light, shade, textures and so on.

On either side of one of the lanes local to me, two big logs (about 3 ft diameter) have been placed across field entrances. These logs are now being colonised by fungi (at least 5 types), and on Friday I went past about an hour before sunset.

I've never seen anything like this before.  The big one is nearly a foot across (and I flipped it over).  There were several others, but this was the largest.

Never seen one.  AFAIK they're no longer edible at that stage.

Just now we have lots of shaggy ink-caps in the garden:
