Mushroom: Amanita polypyramis

September 10th, 2014. These striking mushrooms grew at the base of a small sapling at the edge of the woods. It wasn’t the size of the mushrooms that caught my attention but the large veil which had fallen from the cap of one of them.

Even from a distance the veil is visible on the ground under the mushroom
