Nice shot, Kim !

All very sharp, although not in the same focus.

Thanks!

It is a stack of 4 images.

No wonder is so sharp ! ;) I use this way some times !
Perfect technique for wild mushrooms in the woods when not enough light and thus no stopping down too much.

Very well done !

Common puffball (Lycoperdon perlatum)
Great shot, Kim.  We definitely don't have these in Southern California!

Calendar says autumn around here.

I think this one is Fuligo Septica - Troldsmør in Danish (Troll butter).

 Probably Amanita Citrina - False Death Cap.

Thanks rosco. This individual has vanished. If I spot another of its' kind I'll photograph the stem and gills to more or less confirm identification.

A few more.

First one is probably Meripilus Giganteus - it was quite large :-)
Second one - maybe same species but couldn't see their surface.

Probably Amanita Citrina - False Death Cap.

Definitely Amanita citrina: positive identification is its smell of potatoes, contrary to the Death Cap (A.phalloides), which has little or no smell (young samples). Still it's a mushroom to avoid, not having any culinary uses.

On account of recent rains, mushrooms are popping up everywhere in my area (N Italy). In the Alps, August has been a very good period for collection of edible mushrooms.

Since evolution has given us TWO ears and ONE mouth, we are supposed (me included) to be doing more listening than talking.

Thanks for the verification and elaboration Massimo - I didn't get close enough to notice any smell of potatoes.

Taken in the woods in Michigan this morning.  Had missed it on my hike out, was hurrying back because of rain, and couldn't pass it up.

Panasonic GH4. 60mm macro, hand held, leaning against against a downed log.   1/10 sec, ISO 500, f/9
