2307 - Hallucinogen - Halluzinogen


Amanita muscaria var. Muscaria
Fly Agaric

Djupedalen, Västra Götalands Län, Sweden, Europe

This Fly Agaric close the road caused me stopping by and kneeing on the wet forest ground. Setting up the cable extended flash to improve the light situation opened the wish for a wireless controlled flash. Afterwards I read, that this mushroom was and is used as a hallucinogenic drug. Photography in some way serves the same purpose :-)
