Yes, this is a great shot of a bolete, showing the underneath and stipe so well.

Thanks for the suggestion re switching the photos birdlady.

Jean, here are the photos that I took of those lovely boletes at Lightning Lake. Your photo #2 is definitely the best photo of them all.

I think if you moved Photo # 2 to first place position, it would be good. #2 shows the mushroom best! I will link my photos to your spotting if I get them organized tonight.
