Fantastic Photo!

I agree, they're probably Gymnopilus junonius (=G. spectabilis), although it's possible that they're another Gymnopilus species.

As you said Boti, "The mushrooms are magic" - G. junonius and some other species of Gymnopilus contain the hallucinogenic compounds psilocin and psilocybin.
