Pretty but deadly

Omphalotus olearius or Jack O Lantern mushroom beautiful but poisonous.
Found these above my home next to a log. Also saw an old friend along the way. Griz

Re: Pretty but deadly

Have you ever seen or tried to photograph "fox fire" coming from those jack-o-lantern 'shrooms?

Keep 'em in the ten ring

I have seen it once but never tried to photograph it. Not sure under what conditions it would light up will have to see what the temps ect have to be. Good question got my wheels going.
