This is a really common fungi around here but usually i don’t see it until July. As i was walking my little Mushroom hunting dog Who was very helpful during morel season. (by the way named Little Dog)She went crazy and led me to this mass fruiting. But appeared to be more interested in a little Mycenae growing on the log than the Jack-o-lantern finally got a good action pic of her doing her thing. in pic # 2 is Omphalotus Illudens, a Mycenae and Cains domesticus Var. Chihuahua.
