Attack of the Giant Red Mushrooms

Posted by
Viewfinder (Bradenton, FL, United States) on 6 June 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Ok, maybe not giants, but these red beauties were found growing between my garden bricks last week. When you're not doing a lot of traveling, sometimes there's a lot that can be photographed around the old homestead.

I agree with you! I absolutely love the compo here-the red mushrooms(my first seeing such red mushrooms!),the rough white walls,those green leaves, and the piece of wood at the side.Love it!

I agree I often look that little bit harder with my camera close by :-)

It seems as though they might dart back between the bricks if you get too close.

@Shiva: Sorry but I have no other information on this type of mushroom, nor do I know if it is edible or hallucinogenic.
