Thanks Scott,

No, I have not tried to eat them. Edibility is not my main objective with Boletes. Regarding the watermarked images, it’s just what I do. I’m not trying to keep anyone from using them without permission. It is just how I keep track of my vouchers once they go into the bin. :)

These are beautiful pictures Jason. Congrats on the great obsie.

Have you tried to eat any of these? I’m a little curious.

FYI, I notice that you put a copyright notice on all your photos. That’s a wise precaution, but there is also a default copyright license on the M.O. site that gives people the right to use your copyrighted work under the designated terms. I’m all in favor of that license personally. In fact, I post most of my pictures as “copyright free” because I view them as a gift to the world rather than a chance for me to make money down the road.

But if your intent was to stop people from using the pix without your permission, you haven’t done it. You’d need to go back and change the license terms as your pictures upload. I know several people, including some top end mushroom photographers like Noah Siegel, who DO look at their work from a commercial POV and severely restrict their M.O. use accordingly.

P.S. Mushrooming in Palm Beach? You do know that the rest of us hate you now, right? [Thus Spake The Green Eyed Monster]
