Amanita muscaria - Storybook mushrooms

I've always seen these mushrooms in children's books, and I like them. But it wasn't until just the other day that I saw a real one for the first time!

One morning, my sister pulled me outside, and said "you HAVE to take a picture of this!"
There were only a few at first, but over the next week there were lots of them, and they grew so big. I had so much fun capturing them with the camera.
They start off very rounded, but open up and turn out to be over 6 inches in diameter.
One of my favorite things about them is the bottom - all of those stripes!
This tiny mushroom didn't seem to fit in with the others towering over it!
God created so many wonderful things. One of them is the mushroom.
