Fly Agaric hunting
There is nothing quite like the red and white of the Fly agaric toadstool for a great photo. The mushroom of fairy stories and Brownie promises never fails to raise a smile when you see it poking out from the leaf litter. West Stow Country Park around half term has provided me with great specimens so we walked there today in the hope of finding some more but, whether it's not a great year or maybe we were too late and they were over, the only ones we came across were mostly fully open, faded and spoiled. I managed to find one that after a bit of tidying gave me the images below but otherwise I guess I'll have to wait until next year.
