Mushrooms can be as beautiful as flowers as I told another mushroom hunter. (I found some cool ones on a hike and then I was hooked.) I still have to find my older photos.

more likely russula. when it should be an amanita- red amanita shall be the A.muscaria but there a no white flakes, some could be washed up but at least some residu schould be visible, therefore i think its an red russula --> red cap - center more dark, no reddish marks at the stem, somewhat faded colors ---> possibly : russula - vesca;emetica;mairei;luteotacta (variation from belgium -nederlans paddestoelen) most likely : vesca !!
