Many thanks Mirk0 for your appreciation. My avatar (one of several I use) has no reflection on my persona that I am aware of. It was selected for its colours and being something different from the others I had seen on Panoramio.

Lovely! These are the toadstools always seen in childrens books, i.e. 'Under a toadstool sat a wee elf, out of the rain to shelter himself...'

That is true Theolfa. I wonder if your rhyme originates from the fact that if you ate one you would hallucinate and possibly see an elf. He could be sheltering from the rain as these appear in autumn in rainy weather!

In the olden days rhymes were used to pass on information, perhaps it was a way of warning our children not to eat them.

(What do you think BB ?)

Thanks for the link Mirk0 You have an interesting gallery, I will be back to spend more time browsing through it.

helianta you also like fungi as a photographic subject. You seem to have found far better specimens than I manage to find here in the UK
