Fly Agaric Fungi
Friday 19th October 2012
I have my wife to thank for this photo. On a recent holiday to Dartmoor, walking back to Castle Drogo from Fingle Bridge along the river Teign I wanted to use the Fisherman path and climb Sharp Tor but Dorothy wanted to use the Forester path on the opposite bank. Well, as Dorothy keeps saying, I should listen to her more often because we did use the Forester path and lo and behold we came upon a lovely group of fungi under the shade of a tree right on the bank of the river. I did not have my tripod with me so below is a hand held shot of this beautiful fungus.
I returned two days later with my tripod. The colour and shape had already changed.
I took another shot of this fungus showing the rest of the other fungi and the river in all its glory.
