Melampus, that Chantrelle looks awesome!!! Hope you got to use it in something delicious!
As for Boletes, There are so so many different types, wish I knew more about them. I have seen so many around but do not feel confident picking them yet. Seen a monster King Bolete once. It was unbelievable. I still cannot believe how big they get!

Very nice chantarelles. I like em but think they are over rated. I really prefer the lepiota mushroom to Chantarelles. They have a more nutty, earthy flavor to me.
I think people get carried away with the seductive aromatics of Chantarelle...After they are cooked they are much less distinctive. Lepiota just has such a more strong flavor. But lions maine...I'm gonna go hunting for some soon.
