[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Amanita muscaria. Most species of Amanita are poisonous: some are "deadly," meaning "kill you for sure," but muscaria's poison is a powerful neurotoxin.

Don't eat wild mushrooms unless they've been identified by an expert! The real mushrooms don't always look like the ones in the book; unusual examples of one species may look a lot like some other less desirable species; and the same species may vary in appearance and toxicity from place to place.

Good shot! You've captured this Fly Agaric well. Although the stipe seems a little bright it's not significantly overexposed, I might be tempted to use Shadows/Highlights to extract more detail from it though. Focus is good, as is the DOF. I find the background a little cluttered though. If this were my shot I'd probably sharpen it a bit more to bring out the detail on the cap, but that's a matter of personal taste more than anything else. Well captured :-D
