get yourself one of these:


and you can instantly even out lighting over subjects which are being hit with partial shade/partial sunlight. just one of many cheap ways to take mushroom photography up a notch, no fancy camera/lens required.

Thank you all for the nice ratings

It’s fulfilling to see a good rating on a picture taken with such crappy equipment.

Agreed, Justin.

Thanks Daniel, I wasn’t going to eat it though, it looked very much like C.moly to me as well, but I’m fairly certain it’s not.
I’ve never found C.moly outside of a lawn, except I find it in fields some times.
This species was under oaks, with no grass whatsoever.

Please don’t eat, Justin.

Thin stipe and overall appearance suggests M. chlorophyllum to me. Better safe.
