Day 297/20. Toadstool hunting
An afternoon in the New forest hunting for funghii. There are more Fly Agaric around this year than I have ever seen. (see extra pictures for more shots)
Famous, enchanting and highly toxic. Fly agaric is the home of fairies and magical creatures and a lover of birch woodland, where it helps trees by transferring nutrients into their roots, but if eaten can cause hallucinations and psychotic reactions.
I washed my hands carefully when I got home....
