Amanita muscaria, commonly known as the fly agaric or fly amanita, is a basidiomycete of the genus Amanita. Although it is considered a poisonous mushroom it is said to have hallucinogenic properties. ...strangely enough whenever I see one it looks like someone munched it 🤔🍄 . . . . . .   #amanitamuscaria     #amanita     #toadstool     #flyargaric     #flyamanita     #mushroom     #poisonousmushrooms     #craigellachie     #craigellachienationalnaturereserve     #cairngorms     #caingormnationalpark     #scotland     #uknativ

Beautiful silver birch (Betula pendula) forest at Craigellachie National Nature Reserve. Autumn is just showing turning the whole forest into a magical place. Really enjoying the colour combination of the understory: bracken (Pteridium aqulinum), common heather (Calluna vulgaris), bell heather (Erica cinerea), cross-leaved heath (E. tetralix), bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) as well as loads of bryophytes and lichens . . . . . .   #betulapendula     #silverbirch     #bracken     #pteridiumaqulinum     #commonheather     #callunavulgaris     #bellheather     #ericacinerea     #crossleavedheath     #ericatetralix     #bilberry     #vacciniummyrtillus     #bryophytes     #lichen     #craigellachie     #craigellachienationalnaturereserve     #cairngorms     #caingormnationalpark     #scotland

Another cold, wet, and windy day and another plant filled hike up a mountain! Today we went on a hike in the Craigellachie National Nature Reserve and boy am I glad we did! We saw a couple species of orchids (Dactylorhiza spp.?), a new avens species for me: water avens (Geum rivale), some cool high elevation grasses and sedges that I didn’t even try to identify, a very healthy population of Pinguicula vulgaris (which I was again very excited about), and a bunch of mosses and heather. This hike was a bit of a last minute decision and I am so happy we did it! More pics of the scenery to come in a later post but it was absolutely breathtaking.   #cairngorms     #craigellachienationalnaturereserve     #highlands     #scotland     #honeymoon     #dactylorhiza     #orchidaceae     #geumrivale     #rosaceae     #sedge     #cyperaceae     #carnivorousplants     #pinguiculavulgaris
