    Looks like a hairbrush with mange.

    Laccaria amethysteo occidentalis, Amethyst Deceiver, this is a different colour to those usually found. A neat looking mushroom, fairly easy to identify also.

    What a lovely, delicate colouring this one has. I don't think I've ever come across one as attractive as this.

    This thread puts a smile on my face every time. :D I like puffball mushrooms, especially the big, white ones. They are edible and taste lovely when fried.

    Hungry are we Philip? :p
    This one looks just like an old Scottish shield - all it needs is a spike in the middle.

    Hi Eileen, have you noticed my name under my signature image, Nature's Window. Frank said I should add a name so I sent him that one and he added it.

    We have another saucer type today, Orange Peel Fungus, Aleuria aurantia. Found this one growing on the side of a gravel path in the woods.
