Fly agaric

Fruiting body of the fly agaric (Amanita muscaria). The fungus is well-known for its being poisonous, less-well for being a mycorrhizal fungus. It can often be observed under birch trees (which is where this picture was taken), but also forms symbiontic relationships with other tree species.
