A guest post today! These awesome pictures were sent to me by a friend who found them in Chicago area. They might be Amanita type - related to the Death Cap and a whole slew of psychotropic shrooms - but even the experts say not to identify fungi from a photograph, so there's no way that someone like me could say for sure.
Either way, the obvious choice is not to eat them. But we all learned that lesson when we were small, right? Thanks wings.
