Fly agaric fungus (Amanita muscaria) mushrooms growing in a grassy area. These poisonous mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of the Amanita muscaria fungus. The caps have long been dried and used for the hallucinogenic compounds they contain. These are mature fly agaric mushrooms that will release the reproductive spores, which then form a new fungal body. This fungus is commonly found among birch trees in temperate regions, fruiting in the autumn. Photographed in the Peak District National Park, UK.
