This is the second in my mini series of autumn fungi from the pine plantation floor. This one most people will know as a ‘fly agaric’ or Amanita muscaria. The image from yesterday is, I believe, a more mature example. As I’m sure for many, this to me conjures up childhood imaginings from fairy tale books. Taken in late afternoon light 🙂

Yes, they almost glow, starting at what I would call “pillar box red” turning to the orange egg yolk colour
I like this one too – and yes, something from fairy tales. And, again, the pine debris brings life and reality and the background is unobtrusive. Very nice lighting. A 🙂
Yes, they were!
