I'm always happy if I find a Fly Agaric in the nature. It was really a long time ago that I've seen them the last time.

 

The highly toxic and sometimes lethal fungus should not be eaten! The Fly Agaric or Fly Amanita (Amanita muscaria var muscaria) is one of many in the genus Amanita. The fly agaric occurs in Central Europe from July until October.

Previously, the fungus should be sliced in small pieces in sweetened milk and was used as flycatcher.With the right dosage the flies were killed drinking from this milk, therefore the name of fly agaric.

How e.g. the four-leaf clover, the ladybug or horseshoes is the fly agaric one lucky charm in Germany. May be in other lands, too ? I don't know ... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amanita_muscaria
