Caption: Fly agaric mushroom. One large and one small fly agaric mushroom, Amanita muscaria, growing in grass. This mushroom has a bright scarlet cap with distinctive white pyramidal warts. The cap is globose or hemispherical in the smaller younger mushroom but has flattened in the larger older one. The common name comes from the habit of breaking the cap into platefuls of milk, used since medieval times to stupefy flies. The mushroom is common in Europe in late summer to autumn among birch trees. It is very poisonous with hallucinogenic properties. Photographed in Germany.
