Pictures taken as close as possible with wide angle lens.





My camera and setting: Nikon D80. ISO 100. F 2.8 @ 17mm (Tamron 17-50mm).

Both mushrooms are lethal to human and no doubt birds. In the second photograph the mushroom has been eaten a bit. So fatal attraction maybe?

What species is the first one?

It looks very much like Coprinus comatus, which is harmless and good to eat.

I'm impressed. When I looked that up on google and found the page on Wikipedia. The mushroom very much looks like it. Could be. The local university has a few gardens spread around campus. I was waiting for a group meetup with the local camera club who never showed up. The mushrooms were in a small secluded spot that the gardeners missed. Now that I think of it. They were next to a restaurant. But.. No it can't be...

Still don't eat it without expert opinion. They (verified C. coprinus) are very good cooked in milk and butter. They are unmistakable in the UK.
