Fly Agaric Mushrooms

Hey look what we found in Corvallis, Oregon on a walk on Thanksgiving.  I have never seen these mushrooms in person. It was so cool to find one and I mean just ONE, we kept looking for another but no luck. This one was not so perfect but it really stood out even under all the thicket I had to crawl through to get this photograph. It's botanical name is Amanita muscaria and is poisonous and psychoactive. I have read that they are usually found in the northern hemisphere , can't believe I have never seen one till now after all the outdoor hiking, ect I have done. This one was about the size of my fist.  Somehow I guess I never really thought they were real.
