I believe we can all agree that the Fly Agaric (Amanita Muscaria) is, by far, the most recognizable mushroom in the world. It is the Poster-boy for trouble, the Icon for poisonous mushrooms.However, not many people know that it's widely consumed throughout the northern hemisphere, especially in northern Europe and Asia. A simple 30 minute parboiling turns this unmistakable red warning sign into a delicious food.So why is it that a perfectly edible mushroom is the cover face for the bad... continue reading
Being in a forest and mostly with a photo camera, I have felt many times over that it was not I who was looking at the surroundings while my expectations to see a wild animal had fulfilled.

Oxford's Botanic Garden was founded in 1621 with a mission "To promote the furtherance of learning and to glorify nature".The oldest tree in the Garden is an English Yew planted in 1645.Although at the time they were not planted for their medicinal properties, yew trees now provide the raw material for two important cancer drugs, paclitaxel (taxol) and docetaxel (taxotere).The magic of trees can be enjoyed in many images and also from the fact that the oldest species in the garden also offers... continue reading
