A few posts ago Bente asked to see the mushroom I had photographed. Well, I don’t think I will post that although it could qualify as a bad photo for Diva’s request. Anyway, I have some of that species and will share a couple of those along with a few others.
2013 did not find me in much of a fungus mood. Only a few insects this year also. It was a frog and flower year. So here are a few blasts from the past.
These are a couple of the very poisonous Amanita muscarias, possibly v.formosa and the same species as the one I mentioned.
Another Amanita, but even more deadly is the Destroying AngelOne of my favorite images from a trip to Baxter State Park is this Dark-stalked Bolete. I am pretty sure most if not all boletes are edible, but this is too lovely to chomp…..edit: A few folks have commented that some boletes are indeed poisonous so don’t eat anything you don’t know for sure is safe…and don’t ever eat anything based on something you have seen here!!!!
So enough already. :-) If you have enjoyed these I can do another collection of fab fungi another day. Just let me know. If you’d rather not…well, I’ll get the hint.
