All mushrooms are edible, but some only once.
~Croatian proverb

I originally heard a variant of that proverb: "All plants are edible, but some only once." Who originally figured out which mushrooms are edible and which will kill you? Some brave souls! Mushrooms today.

Beautiful overhead shots of the first two.

Very curious as to the backstories behind the Mushroom cave and the Mushroom war.

And I wouldn't want Arcimboldo's Winter on my wall!

Cool can structures...they remind me a bit of the mushroom scene in Fantasia.
