This is a lovely photo and the mushrooms look Collybioid to me, maybe someone else can recognize them without seeing the gills, but I am not able to.

no, sorry for increasing my vote..i’m just completely stumped on this one.

if i have additional photos i promise i will post them, but these are all from last august and i’m only just now trying to learn how to i.d. mushrooms.

anything taken this week or sooner will have shots of the gills. i’m by no means a scientist though.. just an english major, editor, and freelance photographer trying to expand his knowledge a little.
