Cool variety of mushrooms on today's walk

Recommended Posts

Whilst out walking the the dog earlier, I couldn't help but notice so many varieties of mushrooms.

I never really used to concern myself with fungi, but I have noticed that as I age, I'm becoming quite captivated by them.

Is it just me looking out for them as I get older, or are there more mushrooms around than normal this year?

I just grabbed some snaps on my old iPhone 5, so sorry for the picture quality, which doesn't really do them justice.

Nice shot on the Fly Agaric! I haven't seen one in person yet. I saw this beast the other day though, a whole bunch: Amanita calyptroderma (Coccora is common name, which I'd be interested to know what 'coccora' means if anyone knows)

Wait a second, you mean I unwittingly shot some psychodelic mushrooms??

 

Damn it!  

Yes you did.  I have never eaten this mushroom, but I have heard it is rather unpleasant.

The 2nd mushrooms is probably a ringless honey mushroom, the 6th is a russula possibly atropropurea, 7th lactarious possibly deliciosus.
