    Amanita and dead leaves 2

    I've always loved these, despite their toxicity. This one, photographed as I found it surrounded by dead plane tree leaves. 0.2 mm ems pinhole at 36 mm from 2.25" x 3.25" Efke 50 film, 5 min exposure with no. 11 yellow-green filter, developed in PMK. The filter didn't seem to make much difference; I expected it to raise the greens and lower the red of the fungus. However I'm happy with the image. Pinhole-subject distance about 20 cm.

    Great image! Too bad it's not in color, though; that looks like a lovely specimen of A. muscaria.
    Not really all that toxic, unlike its cousins. A bit "magic", and at one time, highly prized by shamen...

    Thanks Kier and Dave. Looks like I got the size right - after help from friends. Thanks.
