I do not know one mushroom from another that is why I buy mine from a supermarket. So if anyone knows the names of these and if they are poisonous that would be useful. I know Adrian is pretty good at this so maybe he can help.

These were all found at my place of work.

I just recently photographed #5 while following along the Lewis and Clark trail. We we're just outside of Billings Montana along the Yellowstone River. I think I got #2 also there. Gee, if you get an ID, I would be able to include that along with my post and people would think I am smart. :)

None of these muchrooms look particularly appetizing and I'm with you on getting store-bought only.

Loved those "tall" ones...thought I'd see an elf under there!

Kevin, I can't tell what #1 is.
#2 Shaggy ink cap.........good eating.
#3 is the same but past it's prime.
I can't help with the others.
If you post them to Wild about Britain someone will know.

PS. The penultimate one is also a Shaggy Ink Cap I think. They usually fall over before the get to this state.

Precious fruits that nature produces images so clear and show us.

Hi Dad,

If I remember my undergrad mycology correctly (not a given, seeing as it was 10 yrs ago!):

#1 = maybe top end of a Tricholoma?
#2 = Coprinus cornatus or shaggy ink cap
#3 = also C. cornatus
#4 = I think, maybe an Armillaria species.
#5 = probably (very!) mature Conocybe lactea or white dunce cap
#6 = looks a lot like Hypholoma fasciculare or sulphur tuft - if so, very toxic!

Excellent Pictures

They are amazing pictures! I have never thought of taking photos of mushrooms, but I'm glad you did. I really like them.

Thank you so so much for your wonderful comment on my watercolour. It means a lot to me as this is my first one and I'm "testing" the reactions on my blog. I know (from all your photos) that you have a really good eye, so if you think it's good then I believe it :-)

Have a lovely Sunday evening and a good week ahead. xo

PS: Sorry I'm always so slow at visiting - my life seems to have a mind of its own st the moment ;-)
