October- Fly agaric (Amanita muscaria) taken near George Green Library, University Park. About the shot: Canon 7D. The university campus is a great habitat for fungi, but this was an interesting one because fly agaric are normally associated with birch trees and these had transferred their preference to gum trees by a busy road.Photo credit: Tom Hartman
