    Ah! Well, mushrooms are used often as a psychedelic drug! I forget which species is used...just that it is prevalent in any area with pasture animals. At least in the eastern US.

    Thanks for giving me an appetite, Mietek!
    2nd we call "Tintling", one of my favorites, collect them when they are young, like in your pix, they turn black when older, seen in your later pix.
    just stir fry them with butter, salt and pepper, yummy!
    3rd one looks like a "Butter pilz", very delicious.

    btw, there is more edible species out there, than you would think, but best collected with a book in hand.

    Here are a few fungi I photographed in my travels. The first three are Parasol Mushroom (unopened), Dryads Saddle and Fly Agaric. The fourth one I haven't identified. I wouldn't try to eat any though. I think shop bought are safer. BTW our hallucinogenic mushrooms in the UK are tiny insignificant things that are easily overlooked.

    Ethereal and deadly. Wonderful little creatures that refuse to be classified as a plant. Shrooms, another of Mother Nature's best works.
