Fantastic light over and under these beauties, Songbird. I ate one that looked like these once. The effect was ENTIRELY different! #1168375

Oh, how I love mushroom photos, and this is a beauty... mmmm maybe you should gather these and discover the new weight loss program... from big to long as no one has to fit into a rabbit this is really well composed, lighting is wonderful, and those colors are tempting! well done! 8o) #7849546

Alaska is a mushroom lovers dream. Like this one many are toxic. The red caps scream DANGER. Many are edible. #7850518

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. #7850853

Also known as the Aranita Muscaria. Lots of these in New Zealand and very poisonous. Excellent POV and nice detail on the gills. #9498452

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.
