Fly Amanitas, Amanita muscaria, have been known as symbols of good luck. Craig Tooley recently photographed one of these distinctive mushrooms.
Judy Woudenberg also captured a photo of one. They change size rather dramatically as they age. Judy's is younger than Craig's.
Thanks to Craig and Judy for allowing me to share their photos with you here. To see much more of Craig's nature photography, here is his website: www.ruffimage.com
