Behold: the alluring Amanita Muscaria. I took these photos this afternoon when Buck, Lou and I walked the woods. But beware. These beauties will take you on a magic carpet ride or put you under for good. Fortunately, Lou has the good dog sense to leave them alone. We have so many different types of fungi in our woods, I just ordered Pat O’Reilly’s book, Fascinated by Fungi, and look forward to getting better at identifying them.
