It hasn't been a good year for fungi due to the lack of rain throughout September and October. My local Fly Agaric site didn't have as many specimens as last year but a couple of visits back in September did provide one or two that were quite photogenic. Until I found my local site 2-3 years ago I had never really had the chance to photograph Fly Agarics. As a result, they almost became something of an obsession as I was so keen to photograph them due to their classic toadstool appearances so familiar from children's stories. The legacy of this now cured obsession is that I can never resist photographing Fly Agarics whenever I see any. Here are a few from this autumn.
