Wordless Wednesday: Shaggy Ink Cap Mushrooms

Shaggy Inkcap Mushrooms

Almost wordless: Shaggy Ink Caps were popping out from beneath what I believe is a patch of wild blackberry shoots in the park where I watch birds. These are edible mushrooms, but I forage only with my camera!

    Very cool — I’ve eaten them before (in a restaurant). I don’t pick mushrooms either.

    They’re really beautiful.
    I love looking at the variety of mushrooms but can’t identify them by name.

    They’re gorgeous!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen these before. The only wild mushrooms we pick and eat are morels.

    What lovely pics! I have never seen Shaggy Ink Caps before.

    great pictures, but I think I’d be a little nervous of making a mushroom stew with them.

    I have never seen these! They are so pretty!

    A new one for me, too. Very pretty, and probably deadly.

      No, actually they’re edible when young, before they get inky. But I only forage with my camera!
