The Vikings are supposed to have used a dried version of this, and maybe they then saw wonderful these colours too? A great macro :-)
I'll stick to button mushrooms, but great shot.
Love the detail :)
Very impressive. Looks so surrealistic.
Interesting macro..love the color
Thanks Tyra.Rune - I've been told even until recent times Amanita Muscaria were fed to reindeer and the urine drunk by their herders for hallucinogenic effects.Hermes, I prefer field mushrooms when they are big and open. Like you, I avoid everything else!Hello Nat - I find these circles of dots slightly mesmeric.Luis and Chuck - if you'd like to see a really story-book type toadstool, see my post athttp://looseandleafy.blogspot.com/2010/10/urban-amanita-and-some-interesting.htmlFaye, I linked this post to 'Colour Carnival'.Lucy
I had to look up your description to learn what this was. Had not heard the term before. At first glance I thought it was the top of a squash or perhaps a gourd.Love the color and the spots. Thanks for coming along for a ride on the old carousel with me. I do appreciate all those who visit and leave a comment.
Hello Rita.The Amanita Musacaria (Fly agaric) is the archetypal toadstool. It seems to feature somewhere in all children's fairy tale books.I'm glad I visited your blog. The carousel post is one I expect I will always remember.Lucy
Lovely macro on the Toad Stoll !
