Mushroom Madness

All the rain we’ve been having has resulted in a host of fungal fruiting-bodies. The enormous ones above (my boot is a literal foot, 12″ long) have been IDed as Green-spored Parasol (Chlorophyllum molybdites). Also known as the “vomiter.” Don’t eat.

I suppose it’s trial and error for some mushroom-consumers?

Another enormous specimen. A bolete this time. The pen is 3.75″ or 9.5cm long.The next day, tiny orange-eyed flies were all over this.
