View of Alaskan mushrooms. This was from a photo taken by Dabs of items in her garden. She lives in Alaska. They must really grow them big up there! Not sure how tall these are, but the leaves around it indicate they are quite large.

Found out these are called Amanita Muscaria or Fly Agaric mushrooms and are poisonous. The cap on these are about 5 inches in diameter. They get larger. As they age, they get redder on top. (Thanks to Dabs for the information).

Done in Prismacolor colored pencil on Strathmore Bristol vellum paper. It didn't turn out like I wanted it to, but I was too tired to do any more to it.

These mushrooms get to be about 6-8" high and they are poisonous as all get out!

Sweet picture!
