    Default While I was picking mushrooms...

    I'm not really in mushrooms, I confess. I've been invited by my friends to join them in the picking mushrooms, so I accepted an invatation. I picked everything I found and put in the basket, and soon after that I was kindly asked not to pick mushrooms anymore - would be better to do some photo, they said; all mushrooms that I picked up were poisonous.
    So, here are some pictures that I've done while they're picking mushrooms:
    This is poisonous Amanita spissa, it looks very beautiful. This one is still young:

    the older one looks like:


    This one, they said, is also poisonous: Amanita muscaria:

    For this one I don't know what it is, regardless of the fact that they have ignored it, I assume it is edible

    Just after I left the forest and the mushrooms, I found quite a few suitable "models":
    Spiderweb with morning dew:


    some butterflies:


    Beautiful Damoiselle Damselfly

    At the end of the day the result of picking mushrooms was 2 baskets full of delicious mushrooms, in the first basket are Boletus adulis and in the second Macrolepiota procera:

    Funny you post these now... I was driving a back way the other day and almost stopped and took pictures. There was a lawn covered with big white mushrooms with pretty spots on them. Then I remembered some spots are bad...lol. You obviuosly still had a very picturesque walk...your pics are lovely!

    I think you have the first 2 types reversed. Amanita muscaria is one of my favorites. Even though poisonous, they are beautiful. A. muscaria is the red with white spots.
