Autumn Parasols

One of the exciting finds at Killerton on our fungus foray with the Devon Fungus Group is a Parasol Mushroom. Our leader has it pointed out to him from fifty metres away and knows what it is without needing to go any further.

I’ve seen them here before:

They make a curious sight:

Today is warm and bright and the sky is blue. I decide to trek across the field to see it:

They’re large and fleshy. It’s soon in someone else’s basket with mentions of deep frying.
