Bolete Mushroom

It's been a rainy week here which has given mushrooms a good opportunity to fruit. Coincidently I pulled a postcrosser from the Czech Republic that likes watercolor cards and nature illustrations. While staying as true to the mushroom as I could I chose this one that popped up in the grass. A mushroom id group on facebook gave a few species names... and it seems as though within the past couple of years new genus names have been given to several mushrooms in the Boletaceae family - so we are just calling this one a Bolete.

Pollination Post Card

Another postcard going out soon. This postcrosser in Russia requested bees, wasps, or other pollinators. This was a design I came up with a while back for something else but never really used it. I thought it might make a nice card. Waiting on prints I ordered. I think he'll like this one.
