Notes: In my backyard!
First three photos: the two oldest specimens. One has folded up like a cheap suitcase as well as beginning to deliquesce. The other is still ovoid but is just blackening at the very bottom of the cap.
Next photo: a single younger specimen.
Next two: another younger specimen.
Seventh: the whole group.
Some specimens have two or three photos, some shaded and some in sunlight.
Eighth: the upright mushroom from the first three photos, eight hours later. It had dried out a bit during the day but had not opened up appreciably. Some differences in its appearance are a result of very different lighting conditions: it was twilight. I actually held a flashlight beam on the mushroom while the camera’s autofocus did its thing, so as to get good focus, then shut it off so the camera would take a flash photo.
