so NOT chantrelles

The motherload of orange mushrooms growing under a bike trailside oak tree turned out to be the highly poisonous Jack o' Lantern mushroom.  Well, it smelled nice and looked amazing.

Did you know in France, pharmacists are trained in mushroom identification?  You can take a questionable mushroom to a pharmacy and they can either pat you on the back or let you know to ditch your find.  Another reason why French society is amazing.
