Also, your red-spotted newt is a great photo.
My suggestion is to get a small camera. It might not have helped you with this one, but I can take a hand-held Sony, dig out the adjacent soil, then place a leaf or a cloth on the soil and point up. It works great. Gill shot taken, mushroom still alive and growing!
damp paper towel(s) (not soggy wet) and set the mushroom with the stem straight up and down in a cup or small glass, then many amanitas will oblige by continuing their expansion process to the point of dropping spores. (Put a 3 × 5″ note card under the cap (as close to the cap as feasible) with a notch in the card to accommodate the mushroom’s stem. Then you’ll catch the spores as soon as they start to be produced.)
What can go wrong? Well, the troll doll fungus can just take over and spoil the whole thing; however, if you are careful not to ignore your set up for more than over night, the troll doll transformation is not likely to occur.
over my reluctance to disturb them. If picked this young will they still produce spores?
showing the absence of the partial veil would be a good addition next time round.
