According to Wikipedia, "In remote areas of Lithuania Amanita muscaria has been consumed at wedding feasts, in which mushrooms were mixed with vodka."

Don't try this at home

Thanks for all these nice to know details about fly agaric's Howard, I knew they were not edible (or maybe just once ) but never heard the wodka blending story, but that is indeed another experiment I'm not willing to try


I found a few more in the lawn in front of an elderly home

One:



Two:



Three:



And a top down helicon focus stack of the right two from the picture above


All A7ii + Voigtländer APO Lanthar 65/2 macro

And a funny anecdote from when I was shooting these: two old ladies went for an afternoon walk from the elderly home where these were standing. They saw me there with my tripod shooting these and after watching me a few minutes they asked if they were real mushrooms or just plastic ones that I put there to take the shots

Nice photos and an amusing story, Pieter. Whatever happened to the trust in photographers. Now we are all seen as manipulators. Touching that your old ladies haven't heard of Photoshop yet ...

My Fly Agaric was growing in the same spot as last year - here's a picture I took 53 weeks earlier


A7 III and Tamron SP 70-300 USD

More as yet unidentified fungi from another Oxfordshire location to follow shortly.

Good story Pieter! The agaric fly is a photogenic species.
Now Oktoberfest is over, I will post some of my recent mushroom shots here later.

The season is almost over, so let's start publishing a few from last month.
Not good with names of all the species ....

#1


#2



#3



#4



#5


#6


#7


#8


#9


#10


All with the Oktoberfest set, A99ii + Sigma 2.8/105mm EX DG MAcro HSM OS (#1,4, 7, 8, 10) or Flektogon 2.4/35mm (#2, 3, 5, 6, 9)

I am fortunate to live next to forest with a great variety of mushroom species and went out a lot for Oktoberfest, so there is more to come

That's a lovely set, Fred.

I'm working through a backlog of photos too. About a month ago I spotted this one over the border in Buckinghamshire.

Thanks Howard! Fortunately my backlog is only in posting. I try to keep up with processing, otherwise my backlog is likely to end up unprocessed forever
Interesting pattern on the hood of this mushroom.

Fred, I have a "trick" to re-look at old unprocessed photo's (I have way too many ). I look at the month of my "Random Shot" and choose an uprocessed photo and PP/post that one the same day.

That's why I took this image from december 2014 (week 50) and post it today, after sleeping on my hard drive for almost 5 years


A850 + Min 50/1.4

But I'll take a look at this years' oktoberfest and I expect some fungi to show up here in the coming weeks.

Nice trick Pieter! I had noticed some connections between your random posts and other posts on the same day, but now I know the story behind it
Looking forward to your mushrooms here

What a nice set, Fred! I really like 2,3,4, and 6. Hard to pick a favorite so I'll say 4&6 are my favs.

digiton, I really like the shadow shot. I feel a tighter crop might also be impactful. The silver lining of the leaf looks nice.

The square crop is a natural choice for the next one but the extra space on the left bugs me a bit. Symmetry would help.

A greyscale version might also be interesting for both.
