Here's some pics of just some of the shrooms found on Mount Desert Island, Maine. don't have a clue what they are, except beautiful....


this one's my favorite - looks like tree fungus but grown on a stem from the ground:

Good pics, and finds. The first are Amanitas, possibly Fly Agarics. The second is some type of bolete. It appears to have reticulation on the stem. My guess would be Boletus mirabilis. Not sure about the third, but I the forth is Amanita Muscaria.

I thought a. muscaria var formosa was hard to ID at such an early stage.. Although I to agree it looks like it... How can he be sure.???I found a few muscaria the other day at various stages of developement. The small ones like the above example looked as yellow as could be. Then the more developed they got the more golden to dull brown they became.. I surmised they could not be a. muscaria var. formosa.... I hear they make you manic, and narcotic sleepy, like for a long time... then sick doesn't sound fun to me... but to each his own.... NFU...

he is not sure, for the first one i dont think it is A. muscaria var. formosa but they are very old etc. but the last one sure resembles it.

these pictures are beautiful. the boletales look like a Xerocumus sp. to me because of the velvetty cap and overall look of the mushroom from my experience.
