Orange Birch Bolete (Leccinum versipelle)

The Orange Birch Bolete is an orange coloured fungus, found near birch trees and is a member of the boletes family so I guess the name is a pretty fair description of it! Usually a solitary species, found in late summer and autumn and is quite common. The orange cap is quite distinctive and once seen you will probably remember it.
It is edible; want to try it?
