    Cool Colorful Mushrooms

    I found these this morning when I went to turn on the watering system for the vanda/mounted group. I have no idea about mushrooms, I just thought these were interesting. For one, i'd never seen a red mushroom and second, they are so tiny.

    You guys are too funny. I am guessing it is a Bolete mushroom. Big family, common - some edible and some lethal. Hmmm, guess I would opt to just enjoy the view.......................

    I didn't even touch it. I'm aware some can be bad. I found this Bolete online and they say if it bruises blue it's bad for you.

    They are beautifully colored shrooms. Though to me the red color screams warning I'm not good for you.
