Artist's Description

Macro study of a “Lactarius Piperatus” mushroom found near a lakeside in the Rideau Lakes area, Ontario, Canada.

According to my brother, Mannie (who knows his mushrooms):

“This looks like a Lactarius Piperatus – one of the “milk” mushrooms, the Russulacae- and its not considered edible : they’re common and have a real acrid peppery taste, should you be curious enough to place a small piece on your tongue. They are eaten cooked in some cultures but are also reported to cause gastrointestinal upset .

Slice across the gills: if it bleeds white milk, it’s this species."
