Really old illustration of a Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis). I’m pretty sure I started to colour this with watercolours and colour pencils, but I can’t find it.

Went out looking for shaggy manes, found abundant amanitas, including a wealth of psychedelics, and a small collection of manes. Manes only present on clay hill by lake under conifer needle cover. Amanitas all along deer trails in thorny brambles and among autumn olives. All amanitas in fairy circles, also observed in lawns.
