Red Riding Hood, or:
Fly agaric, fly amanita or just (in my mother tongue): Fliegenpilz
Recent weekend, during a hiking tour with friends in the Steigerwald Nature Park, Lower Franconia, Germany, we looked for mushrooms. Eatable specimens of course.
And, yes, we found several edible boletus (Steinpilze), but then we found these wonderful Amanita muscaria, known as fly agaric or fly amanita species in the middle of a mixed woodland.
We had rain the night before, so the forest soil was rather moistly.
Ideal conditions of growth for the fungi.
If you wanna know more about these beautiful, but poisonius fungi, Wikipedia tells you everything about
Not all of the fly agaric have a bright red hood, some of them tend more to a yellow colour with or without white spots.
