mushroom season

Mushrooms, Nats garden, Hereford.
It is time for mushrooms as autumn is upon us. I dont know enough about them but I did take a deathcap home to my mum once to see if we could eat them and she thought I had contaminated her whole kitchen including freshly made stew! sorry mah! Richard will know what it is i'm sure, and will leave a comment. Peace to ya all and find some mushroom man.

This is a Shaggy ink cap, Coprinus comatus.
These are delicious raw in salads or lightly fried in butter. Pick them when they're young and firm and eat them straight away (like a lot of things ha ha).
I like the tiny little fly on the top. It must be used as an insect helipad or something..
