I started doing macro photography pictures with mushrooms.
I think that to make beautiful photos must have especially beautiful subjects to photograph and this mushroom I think is one of the most beautiful! Do not you agree? Amanita muscaria is a very nice mushroom!
I show you some pictures of this fungus rich in stories and legends ....
The fungus that is encountered in the stories of the gnomes, It is also the mushroom Alice in Wonderland . There are several varieties in which the color of cap is more or less red or orange .
Although classified as poisonous, reports of human deaths resulting from its ingestion are extremely rare. After long and special treatments in the kitchen in some countries the mushroom is eaten . But, in my opinion, much better not eat. The Amanita muscaria is also known for its psychotropic qualities .
This is photographed in Sardinia (Italy) under a forest of eucalyptus .
