Amanita Muscaria Returns

The Amanita Muscaria mushroom returns each winter, usually after a good soaking rain.  It is not edible, but would make you hallucinate in unpleasant ways — so I’ve heard.  It looks like the classic toadstool of fairy tales.  I enjoy seeing them pop out the ground, round and red, open up and then flatten out while losing their color.
