Thanks martin.
The onset of mushroom season is definitely intimidating... I think I have so far failed to ID my last 4 or 5 fungi.

I like this mushroom. Pic # 1 is framed very nicely. I've noticed less insects since days get shorter and I can forsee a refocus on fungi for me too. No help with ID from me. This will be my learning curve.
