that striking pink color can be lost with age, but they are unmistakeable in their youth.

Nice one, Debbie!

Certainly look like they taste good. I assume the pinkish tinge on the outer surface and stipe is the reason for the species name.

all chanterelles are edible …

Just curious, Chanterelles have always fascinated me and I’m just wondering whether all varieties are edible, or only some. Such as this one.


Nice image. Congrats on the shot. Sharp! Added a vote but wasn’t sure how to change it from user to kk. .>>>
