6th September


Local farm.


A glorious day.

These two fungi were growing side by side in an open field, under a single specimen of Oak.

First Boletus erythropus, about 12 cm across. This flesh of this species turns blue/black instantly when cut.


And this is a large specimen of Amanita rubescens - the Blusher. Cap about 15 cm. across.

Poisonous when raw.
