I discovered a funky looking mushroom this morning so I decided to try to make some macro images.
I think perhaps what I have images of is a "shaggy mane mushroom" or Coprinus comatus. I'm not sure so if anyone can definitely id it that would be great.
The one above was about 6 inches tall and about 2 inches around.
There is more info at this LINK if your are interested.
The links says they are edible - if this is indeed the shaggy mane - but I don't think I'm gonna try, not being sure and all.
A few feet away these 3 were just coming up out of the ground. The biggest one was perhaps 2 inches tall.
Speaking of mushrooms, remember this post about the funky mushrooms. Well this is what they ended up looking like - just a pile of...well it almost looked like petrified wood.
Also spotted this little guy today....struggling up through the leaves to catch the rays of autumn light.
this little guy was working away when I visited the arboretum on October 7th.
Hope you all have a great Monday.
