Amanita Muscaria

Stage # 25 La Guingueta d'Àneu >> Estaon (3/4)


A series of macros from the 25th day of my trekking.

The "making of" the main photo: the Muscaria was on a steep slope down to our left. Taking off the heavy backpack is difficult so I tried, as allways, take the photo with my load... but I slipped, lost my camera and I fell down the slope like a rolling stone. So, had to unload, go down to find my Powershot in the middle of the trees and come back up to shoot the mushroom... the debris over the mushroom was already there before I came!!
