While in Heidelberg my family and I had a couple of outings, one of which led us to a meadow on the "Kohlhof"; this is where I used to ski when I was a wee lad. Anyway, my brother pointed to a "Fliegenpilz" right next to a fence, so I shot it. Then I found a way to get on the other side of the fence, and WOW ... never had I seen so many Fly Amanitas. Just incredible. So here are some samples, and so it does not get too boring, a couple of other shrooms as well ...

one bite should do it ....

Agreed. Droves and buried tree stump just barely edge the others out for me.

Agreed, but add in the one just before Droves with the overhead perspective showing the different stages of the shrooms as being the winner for me.

P.S. Had a good feed of Inky Caps last weekend, and hoping for another, with this short warm spell here.

Thanks all; yeah, in all my life I have never come across those fly amanitas; that being 60 years .. and then I see lots of them in one meadow. Quite amazing.

These are excellent, especially the first four. I love the fourth shot for the composition, the suggestion that by raising my head slightly I could see the entire field. Well done.

Cool set Matt, with lots of colour and variety. We don't see mushrooms like that here
