Stock Photo Description
Stock photo of beautiful looking Yellow Fly Agaric poisonous mushroom growing from the forest floor amongst fallen leaves during the Autumn season. The Yellow Fly Agaric fungi has a stunning appearance be it this yellow variety or the more common Red Fly Agaric. This Fly Agaric toadstool is known in the botanical world as Amanita muscaria var guessowii. A unique and unusual form of Amanita and more commonly known as the Eastern Yellow Fly Agaric and is highly toxic having poisonous properties but if prepared correctly for consumption it can and has been used by such people as the Siberians in the past for spiritual or religious purposes due to the toxic substances being psychoactive. Still a very dangerous toadstool which should be given a wide berth with regard to eating it!
