Fly Agaric

Flora and Fauna Friday: Fly Agaric

My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is the Fly Agaric fungi (Amanita muscaria).

These two specimens were photographed on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England in autumn.

Taken shortly after sunrise in warm light. Unfortunately the slugs and snails had been eating them overnight so I tried to compose the photos to hide as much of the damage as possible.

Reflected in the Bay

WWE: Reflected in the Bay

The Niagara Escarpment and Wiarton Marina reflected in Colpoy’s Bay shortly after sunrise last Sunday.

There’s some very light mist coming off the water which I think adds to the calm mood of the image.

This is my contribution to Jez’s Water Water Everywhere #95 photo challenge.
