Fly agaric mushrooms. These poisonous mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of the Amanita muscaria fungus. The mushrooms release reproductive spores, which land and form a new fungus elsewhere. Fly agaric is commonly found in birch woodlands in temperate regions. The fruiting bodies appear during autumn. The caps contain powerful hallucinogenic compounds.
