D500, 70-210mm f/4-5.6 nearfield the lens is sharp focusing distance is a hit or miss story.

Fiocchetto di Culatello

There's more autumnal creatures than mushrooms... This is the period of the year when swines are sacrificed, and the results can be appreciated one year after.

Here's a 2.6 kg Fiocchetto di Culatello, from last year's pork

In the Parma area this time of the year they have November Porc (a pun on the Oktoberfest, with pork as a theme)

Ciao from Massimo
Since evolution has given us TWO ears and ONE mouth, we are supposed (me included) to be doing more listening than talking.

Boletus luridus

This one is edible, although the name is somewhat unattractive. (=filthy boletus)

#31 looks like an Amanita rubescens, edible

Nice creature, Massimo !

Another edible bolete : Bay bolete (Xerocomus badius). Tubes get bluish when touched. It's a good one although I prefer Penny buns (boletus edulis).

Penny buns (aka Cèpes de Bordeaux) have no color change, and we eat the young specimens uncooked, as a salad with very thinly sliced boleti, very thinly sliced parmesan, and olive oil. A super experience! In the same league as truffle.

I know Italians are fond of ceps ! they prefer the very young one to make carpaccio, as you said. To my taste, I prefer the older ones when the tubes are turning from yellow to pale green. I reckon they are more ''tasty'', as flavours are developed when older.

When I pick-up few kilos, I deep fry them, put them in jars with sunflower oil, and then sterilise them in boiling water 2 hours.
Yummy !

Great thread you've started Francis!

I do like mushrooms but never pick them myself for eating .. but they are fascinating and fun to get close to with a camera, including the deadly ones :)

Here are some devouring an old tree - and a close up of some that looks like "bacon mushrooms".

Nice colour Bent .. almost looks like wine gum. But could be Tremella mesenterica (Gul bævresvamp in danish).

Seeing these photos has been a real treat.  Here in North America we also have boletes, chantarelles, shelf fungi of various sorts, and amanitas including fly agaric, among many others.  In lowland California where I live, the rainy season has started and mushrooms are popping up.  Next time I go on a hike with a camera I'll keep my eyes peeled.
