    The Sickener, Russula emetica. Good if you want to spend a lot of time throwing up.

    Fly Agaric
    Neurotoxic which can cause hallucinations, euphoria and puking - probably all at once.:confused:

    I thought the advice was don't eat them... That sounds like my kind of mushroom :D

    As Terry Pratchett said, All mushrooms are edible.

    It's just that some mushrooms are only edible once.:D

    Just read Tony's post about most people only photographing flowers to try out new cameras/lenses. Guilty as charged.
    My new purchase a Helios 44-2 attached to a Zenit B slr arrived earlier. Lens has legendary bokeh status so with a £3.95 adaptor for my Canon, and the wife and dog knowing I'd had a delivery and making themselves scarce it was off to the garden. Very happy with result, obviously not a macro lens but this was shot wide open at f/2 and I do like the bokeh. Think it would be better on a full frame sensor or I should risk putting a film through the Zenit but at £20 for camera and lens I'm not convinced it's worth the investment :). (I added a vignette in PS)

    Looks good. l was going to shoot some plant life this afternoon but got sidetracked with working out how to resize images to post on here. My new iPad is not like my ancient laptop. I’m going to try photoshop and lightroom tomorrow. Don

    Thanks. Good luck with the IT today. I have been subscribing to Adobe for over a year and have never even opened Lightroom - may investigate later.

    From the garden to my kitchen table. A burst of colour courtesy of the seeds I sowed this year. They did me proud.

    BAM! Lovely, real slap-in-the-face colours that leap out at you.

    haha! A last fling before the dark days. The wildflower seeds and calendula seeds provided me with a blast of colours.

    Here is the product of the 'ploughing' image #19 a couple of months later: - Stubble turnips - taken across (not down) the field.

    Why stubble? I'm not familiar with that term. They seem to be doing very well!

    I struggle with woodland photography, I struggle to find compositions. So today I focussed on the bracken where I found some incredible textures and colours, I hadn't realised how beautiful they are.
