Deadly and Beautiful

Amanita muscaria mushroom near Astoria, OregonNear Astoria, Oregon ~ November 8, 2002
Amanita muscaria or fly agaric

Thanks to Emilio for reminding me to look for the photo. It's an old one taken with an older camera. In several different years, I've looked near the beach where I found this one, but have not seen them. Maybe this year I'll find some and take more photos. I remember one year when the forest floor seemed carpeted with them.

To see some amazing mushrooms from Colombia, check out Emilio's mushroom photos on Facebook.

It's very attractive, but one would probably not want to eat it, right?

By the way, we're going to hold you to your promise re the bagel shop when we visit Astoria!

This looks scary. Like the kind of thing one should leave well alone.
