Fly agaric

By martin174
Fly agaric is a poisonous woodland fungus. It appears in autumn typically found under birch trees, sometimes in large numbers or in rings. It is also common in coniferous woods and plantations.
This was not a perfect specimen. It appeared to have been nibbled on on one side and had a small hole on the top. However I got down low to the ground using live view mode with camera and lens resting on my wifes feet to get more or less the shot I was after. Thank you to my wife for her patience.
Thank you for looking.
