Hi, I’m just getting into mushroom picking. I am trying to learn more about the different types of mushrooms and would rather be safe than sorry. Can anyone identify these types for me please?

The last (24762) as you suggest is Hypomyces lactifluorum, aka Lobster mushroom. No. 24761 is probably an Amanita species, but without better focus I’m not going to guess which one. The same with the other 2 photos, one of which might be a clustered Pholiota. Probably better to post different mushrooms separately, to prevent confusion with answers.
It is hard to say anything about the first two. It looks liek the third has a volva but that is all I can tell. However, the last one is likely Hypomyces lactifluorum, or the Lobster mushroom. I hope this helps. Nate
