Toadstool?

..thats what I thought when I pulled up my driveway and saw these fungi growing in my front lawn on a warm Autumn evening. We googled them and believe that they are a variety called 'Death Caps'...wish I'd known this prior to laying down on my lawn to photograph them... Apparently they are only dangerous if consumed so we're safe!
Awesome shot!! I love it! Great colours and DOF! Fav

Great macro and processing, I've seen these growing but am always very wary of wild fungi, I'm afraid I like to choose mine in the supermarket!
