More Amanitas!

I was surprised to come across these amanita muscaria at a coastal wayside. As you can see from the above picture, it looks like they are growing in a combination of pine needles and sand, which I was not aware they could do.

These seemed to be in an advanced state of decay, beginning to turn into mush. But how fabulous to see them in a place where I had never seen them growing before. A true harbinger of fall :)
