Picture of fly agaric (Amanita muscaria) fungus – Memory from the fall in Northern Norway

Picture of fly agaric (Amanita muscaria) fungus
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera September 6th 2007. Click image for larger view.

In this picture you can see the characteristic fly agaric fungus (Amanita muscaria), also known as fly Amanita. There have been some talk that the vikings used to eat them to get into their “berserk mode”, but this is most likely just an urban legend. If you are wondering, I did not eat it 😉

Captured the photo of the mushroom back in September when there was still some green grass to be seen.
