Late Summer Afternoon at Lemoine Point

Smooth Lepiota (Lepiota naucina)
It was a beautiful, sunny, warm afternoon over at the Point. In amongst the Blue Jays I saw several Black Billed Cuckoos and a Yellow Rumped Warbler. I wasn't doing any digiscoping today as I wanted to focus on some macro photography. I took about a hundred and forty shots, mostly mushrooms. Way too many to post today. I'll be posting them over the next few weeks. Here is a very common mushroom that occurs throughout North America. This mushroom can be confused with the Destroying Angel. This particular specimen was growing in grass, away from trees and has a moveable ring on the upper stalk. The Destroying Angel is always under or near trees.
