after the rain

I am a toadstool. Please don't eat me.

After the rain lots of ‘mushrooms‘ sprout seductively from the ground promising a good feed. The truth is most of them around here on the Coffs Coast are part of the tricky toadstool clan, like this little beauty. A good first hint in identifying who’s who is that toadstools grow under foliage and shady trees and mushrooms tend to like open pasture. I wonder if the tiny fly at its base is contemplating taking a nibble?

    As a kid, a friend of ours showed us a particularly toxic “mushroom.” He warned us never to touch it. Almost to illustrate the point, a fly landed on it—and then dropped dead. I don’t think any of us ever went near it–though I don’t remember its name.
