A Bay Bolette at the edge of Laughton Woods,you really don't need to go far into this woodland to find fungi.
It's posh name is Boletus badius...which makes me smile,sounds like a name from one of the Carry On films or even Monty Python Wink
It likes a habitat where Scot's Pine grow on acid soil.
You can eat this one !
The good old gold reflector & a diffuser were used ,Alison doing her duty like a good pal Wink
I kinda like the lighter bg here,a nice contrast against the darker 'shroom.

F8 manual mode
1/13th sec with tripod
ISO 200
W/B cloudy
F/L 105mm
Pattern metering
Raw file converted in C1v4
Curves adjusted,tidy up crop & border added in CS3

Thanks for looking in...not many more to go now Wink
