Fly Agoric mushrooms are the ones Alice in Wonderland ate when she wanted to get small and fit into the rabbit hole. These grow wild everywhere in Alaska.

    Fantastic light over and under these beauties, Songbird. I ate one that looked like these once. The effect was ENTIRELY different!

Alaska is a mushroom lovers dream. Like this one many are toxic. The red caps scream DANGER. Many are edible.

Very beautiful color and detail captured here, Songbird! Excellent light and composition and very well done! Our red tops here will make you sick if you just handle then so they are definitely a no-no.

Also known as the Aranita Muscaria. Lots of these in New Zealand and very poisonous. Excellent POV and nice detail on the gills.
