It is easy for things to be go unseen in October’s leaf covered lawns. I paused and backtracked a few steps when spotting these two cone-shaped mushrooms. Had they been brown instead of off-white I might have paid them no attention.
Coprinus comatus is the formal name for Shaggy Mane, this variety of an “inky cap” mushroom. That sentence sparks the exploring learner in me, curious to understand what my eyes (and camera) have seen. Admittedly I am no expert yet on nature’s diversity.
