Back to mushrooms. I only have a moderate interest in fungi. Once, though, at a lecture at the British Natural History Museum, I was very surprised to hear that a very much larger proportion of mushrooms are edible than actually believed. One rather startling story was that one species, identified empirically as poisonous in western Europe was considered a delicacy in Russia. Yes: identical, same chemical composition, same everything, different expectations, different effects. Posted by Picasa

Very interesting shot. If you have some photo editing soft, make on images better contrast. But this only my opinion. Thanx for sharing
