On my way out a few weeks ago, I spotted these growing on someone’s front lawn. I'm not sure if they're edible but a wrong guess could be fatal. They were white with a few brown spots on the top side. Unfortunately, I 'm unable to find any information on the fungi in the photos shown here.
I couldn’t resist taking more pictures of them. The front yard was teaming with life, going steady and continuous. It reminds me a lot of the Smurf mushroom village.
on a closer inspection, I must admit, I found its soft leathery texture to be quite amazing.
the close up of the underside of the mushroom!

haha! that little thing made me feel so cozy inside. somehow i imagine myself touching n pinching it. the softness completely take over me!ReplyDelete
I don't think it is edible. :pReplyDelete
Beautiful shots of these nature's umbrella. :DReplyDelete
Pretty awesome looking, nature in all it's beautiful gloryReplyDelete
Great photos! Incredible detail on the underside shot. Too bad mushrooms don't come with signs telling us whether they are safe to eat...ReplyDelete
If they are huge and with wide hats they look exactly as parasol mushroom : http://www.menyse.com/3.12974/varufakta/stolt-fjallskivling/ReplyDelete
I can't help but think of a little Smurf village. :)ReplyDelete
Excellent closeups! All those little folds on the underside - neat!
Really good shot of the nature's umbrella you get there, LR.ReplyDelete
I wanted to poke those fluffy mushroom. XD
Mushrooms cooked in garlic butter with a touch of basil then placed on a piece of toast yummmmmy!. I've been on many mushroom hunts and the last photo tells me they're not edible because the underside should be dark, you were wise to leave them alone.ReplyDelete
Haha me thinking of Smurf too. Yeah agree one wrong move could be fatal heard lots of mushrooms are poisonous. Nice pixz like to feel the tenderness. tQReplyDelete
Looks too beautiful to be eaten !ReplyDelete
The details and tones of the underside of the mushroom are so lovely. Who would have thought fungi could be so beautiful?ReplyDelete
I know it may be confusing for you, Life Ramblings, but these mushrooms - called also Parasol in popular language - are edible! I have eaten them many times. They grow at the border of the forest, where more light is (at least in my country).ReplyDelete
very nice ! did you eat them ??ReplyDelete
Very nice pictures.Greetings Andrzej.ReplyDelete
Nature's umbrellas indeed. Great photos!ReplyDelete
Is that the fungus image?ReplyDelete
Very nice picture
Love these shots... and I love mushroom soup!!! :0)ReplyDelete
I think they are Macrolepiota procera, and with high foot very good, fried in butter. They smell almond. Very fine pictures.ReplyDelete
The mushrooms look cute!! I think if I see them, I will also cannot resist taking photos of them!ReplyDelete
These are wonderful macros of the mushrooms. I like the detail that you captured. The last photo is just great.ReplyDelete
I always expect a little dwarfReplyDelete
Umbrellas - cool! lol Love them! You took us down into the little world!ReplyDelete
I really really like the last shot. You captured the fine details well.ReplyDelete
Mine is here
The mushrooms I uncover also often look pretty and edible. It’s quite a risk to take, unfortunately, so I usually buy my mushrooms at the local store ... never to discover if the ones on my lawn are equally delicious and safe.ReplyDelete
Well, I don't know if they're edible, but they look terrific in your photos! I, too, really love the last one! Great texture and detail! Hope you have a wonderful week!ReplyDelete
Beautiful shots. I loved the title of the post.ReplyDelete
You take the best Macros. I can't wait to get a macro lens.ReplyDelete
They are all so clear and the last one is truly awesome!
They look similar to field mushrooms which are edible but these, well, I would not try them.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos thought!
The last macro shot is great.
oh, gorgeous shots! my grandmother would know if these are edible or not--i used to pick up mushrooms with her when i was very young.:pReplyDelete
What delightful photos!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous. I love photographing mushrooms too. When I go hiking most of the photos I post happen to be of the various fungi I saw!ReplyDelete
Come to think of it, they are kind of like natures umbrellas. A nice dry place for the smaller animals to seek shelter in bad weather.ReplyDelete
hahah so cute!! i love nature's umbrellas :DReplyDelete
excellent shots sweetie!! ;)ReplyDelete
