Mega-Mushroom

I am 3 years old and holding a Red-capped Scaber Stalk (Leccinum aurantiacum). I was very proud of my find. I had been taught to find edible mushrooms from an early age.

The little boy (your brother?) was not so lucky!

Re: That's a big mushroom!

Thank you! Yes, well since I wear glasses now, my mom joked that was the only mushroom I could find since my eye-sight was bad...!
:D
That is my big brother, I agree!

Oh my God, what a big mushroom!

Have you ever watched the movie, "The Chronicles of Narnia ???"

Looks like you & your brother could have very well been actors in a movie -

but ... this is real life ??? ??

You can be anything you want.

I was just thinking that if this photograph
could be frozen and time could stand still,
then it would make for a very nice movie.

How long did it take to consume that mushroom?

Re: That's a big mushroom!

Okay. Mushrooms that are that big are usually cut into thin slices and dried. Then they can be used for spices and for the Polish pierogi (dumplings).

these mushrooms

are also good fried or breaded and fried like a schnitzel. My favorite. I do go mushroom hunting once in a while into evergreen forest after raining and the best is in the full moon time of the month.
Nice photo.
