Caption: Fly agaric mushrooms. Group of four poisonous fly agaric mushrooms (Amanita muscaria) growing amongst small plants. The cap is globose or hemispherical in young mushrooms (lower centre) but more flattened in the older ones. The caps used to be broken into plates of milk to stupefy flies. This mushroom is common in late summer to autumn among birch trees. The dried caps have long been taken for their hallucinogenic and stimulant properties. They contain the drugs ibotenic acid and muscimol, but the effects are unpredictable, and a few deaths have been attributed to this mushroom. Photographed in Anchorage, Alaska, USA.
