Thanks for all the nice comments. Yes Lars, we live next to a big forest and we were lucky to find this beauty. It seems they grow here in Central Europe. I also love your pic :-)
Carol, yes, it looks like a pretty little umbrella..could be a gnome´s or smurf´s umbrella :-)

We were lucky today to find one of these porcelain mushrooms in our walk. We were really in search for mushrooms I we found quite a collection although in many cases they have been half eaten :-)
