Shrooms......

Out walking with Trojan across the fields earlier in the week we found mushrooms popping up all over the place.

I do not know how to identify them so have no idea if they were safe to eat so left them be, Trojan didn't think they smelt too appetising either!!

None the less...they were great photo material!!



mushrooms, poisonous? edible? Trojan, dogs, fields.
This one is upside down but I left it this way
because I thought it looked cool!!

They are such delicate things to emerge from
such solid ground.

Trojan had a good look at them but
wasn't overly impressed!

With this one you can see it hasn't long come
up and see how heavy the earth is.

I'm kind of fond of this
quirky picture.

Trojan having a good old sniff,
didn't try to eat it though.


So what do you thing to my 'shroom' shots?? I rather enjoyed playing about with the camera...Trojan never minds how long I take either as it means he has more time to explore!!
Can any of you identify mushrooms?? Do you know if these would have been palatable or poisonous?? Maybe you know a good book you could recommend to me as I would love to know which ones I could pick fresh from the fields.
