Yellow-Orange Fly Agaric Mushroom

This mushroom was in the high mountain meadows along the Blue Ridge Parkway that runs through the states of Virgina & North Carolina.

Amanita muscaria, commonly known as the Fly Agaric. Yellow-orange Fly Agaric is a poisonous mushroom that should not be eaten. Although it is generally considered poisonous, deaths from its consumption are extremely rare, and it is eaten as a food in parts of Europe, Asia, and North America after parboiling. But it may cause sweating, deep sleep, and disorientation.

Admire its beauty from a distance.
