Well, at least one is for sure. This baby amanita will kill you stone dead. I was nervous even touching it to get a distracting pine needle off. Deceptively cute though.


I don't really know if this one is poisonous, but I'm not going to find out. :yell:


All the rain as made it mushroom heaven in the woods.

Neat shots. Never seen mushrooms like those before!

Nice mushrooms. Like aubintbay I've never seen some in this colours. Hope you still feel well? ; -)

love these, especially the inclusion of the leaf in the second shot.

Love the forest floor perspective on these, especially like the composition of that second shot. Very well done WD.

Thanks guys. I'm still above ground! It's mushroom city around here because of all the rain. I've never seen the red one before either.
I'm glad you like the leaf, Rich. I do too. The way the light hits the upper part is pretty fab.

thanks guys. It was Wide-Open Wednesday or something, so shallow DoF was the rule of the day. Mostly I was trying to emphasize the subject, but offer enough detail. the red mushroom shot was a challenge because I wanted a lot in focus in the fg, but the forest bg blurred a lot. so happy to have DoF preview!
