Thx, i will try it
I'm pretty sure that's a lactarius. A good thing to do with lactarius is break a piece off the cap and have a look at the milk. Notice whether there's a lot of milk or not much, taste it, see if it changes colour. Also dab a bit on a paper towel or a white piece of cloth sometimes this causes it to change colour to yellow or something. It looks good, is there something up with your camera? I'm not sure how long after you've picked it the milk still flows but it's worth a try!
Oops i meant why?
I wouldn't of picked it up if you didn't know what kind of mushroom it was lol
Looks like a type of Bolete.
