The Fairy Tale Mushroom: Amanita Muscaria
Amanita Muscaria are what the typical mushroom looks like in fairy tales. They are very poisonous and highly hallucinogenic, yet quite common in the Pacific North West. This one was roughly 15cm tall and 24 across the edges of the cap, considerably larger than normal.
