No, they’re not poisonous … but they look like it!
I’ve dreamed of this photograph for years before I was able to take it. I love these mushrooms. They make me think of Alice in Wonderland. Leaving a friend’s house in December 2012, I gasped when I saw 10 or so of them growing in her front yard. I barely asked permission before I was shooting frame after frame. I wanted to go back and shoot more in different light situations, but alas, they died and no more grew.
