Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria)

Another image taken whilst out in the rain on Sunday.

I didn't dare change my lens with the weather being the way it was, and made do with what I had!

Nice shot Daff. Glad to see you have been out and about. I've found it really quite difficult to find this kind of fungi in any good condition.

Peter, there were very few at Sevenoaks, and most have been chewed!I found these in a wood near Canterbury.

ONly thing wrong with using the 50-500 for this shot would be how unwieldly it would have been for you! Nice one, Jennnnnnnnnnn
