I found this one with its unusual shape growing in my front yard:

Spongefingers - That is one strange looking mushroom. Flies and all. I've never seen one with a head that color.
photolady - that is also one strange looking mushroom. Nice capture.

Really nice shots here of one of my favorite subjects. Eccs19, thanks for your comments, and yes, the first shot of mine was posted in Post Your Pictures. The second one is a more mature Amanita virosa.

Spongefingers, great shot of the stinkhorn. I've never seen one. And thanks for your comments, too. I've never seen an Amanita phalloides, either, but the A. virosa is very prolific in parts of the woods not far away. They've passed their peak for the season. A. muscaria is not uncommon in some Adirondack woods, too, but I've not seen any this year.

Here's a fungi which I haven't IDed yet. The pale caps are about six inches across, and photographed in the rain:

Here the same mushroom I took my previous fungus shot of a few weeks later and in better light. Anyone know what kind it is?

Tamia - That is really cool looking with the water on them. Almost looks more slimy then watery.
photolady, your shroon looks old and wrinkled. Poor thing.
Mattb123 - Looks like yours have also seen better days. I've no idea what type it is. Don't claim to be a fungus expert, I just think they make interesting subjects.
Blue - that's a nice series for sure. That first set just looks kinda...... weird?

JimBow007 - (love your handle) I can say that I've never seen a mushroom growing inside out like that. Does it always grow like that, or just because it's getting older? Nicely captured.

eccs, yes, they probably were dying. I found them one day and the next day they were completely all gone.

Blue, that red fungus is a great find. Is that the sort that splits apart into a star-shape? (can't remember the name.)
Tamia, those glistening rained-on mushrooms are nicely unusual - really good image.

Here's a fresh-looking one:



Not out of a log, but rather under the end of one.
It's also got that classic "bursting from under the litter" look.

It does that. I took that in my yard in SoCal 7 years ago. It was at the foot of the San Bernardino Mtns about 1 mile below the snow line. It is one of the Phallaceae, the Stinkhorns. That is a rather weird but interesting group. The anatomic looking one was taken here in north Florida.

Edit: Here is one of the more weird ones.

I used to see some that looked like a finger coming out of the ground.
