This trio of fungi are among several growing on the lawn on the side of my house in Dunnellon, Florida, USA. We’ve had a lot of rain lately and they are springing up all over the place.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    These are beautiful, Dot! We’ve got a bunch too, but they’re not the least bit photogenic!

  • Thanks, Monnie. Not exactly sure what kind this is, but I believe it is very poisonous. I hope people watch their pets when there are mushrooms popping up on the lawns.
