Mushroom Monday

Today the rain falls in sheets, thunder rolls. The dark, gray, & wet is such a welcome sight here in the Midwest, rolling in on the heals of a hot, hot, dry, cloudless week. The following fungi were sighted weeks ago already, now shriveled to oblivion. But after the rain today (more expected this week) there will surely be others to discover soon.

My guess is this from the Amanita family: a young Yellow Patches

Not sure what species these guys are (possibly Reddening Lepiota) but often find them in pairs or small families.

Perhaps the same species as above though color is whiter. A lovely little family.

These lovely edibles, Indigo Milky Mushrooms, were back for a short while.

See how they hide! You must sneak up on them.
