I don't know a lot about mushrooms, but I think this is a rufous milkcap. Whatever! I'm not planning to eat them, just photograph them. ;-)
Now that it's fall, mushrooms are popping up everywhere in the forest where I frequently walk and I can't resist taking their photos.
And here's a new one. Its cap is still rounded on top, but as it ages it will eventually become indented like the the one in the first photo.

What fun to come upon one of these rubies! I love the classic Mushroom Cap on them.
We call them Fly-mushrooms. As a child I would walk in a large bow around them, of fear for their toxins.
Now I also can see their beauty.
I don't think I've ever seen one so red. Does look toxic. I wouldn't eat one of those. I guess it's safe to photograph!
Kinda looks like the inside of a watermelon...I think of fungi as ugly, however I'll re-think my assessment...scarlet mushrooms. Who thought that up?!
I haven't seen this kind of colour to a mushroom. Great photos. Are these mushrooms poisonous or you can eat them?
What a great capture and idea. That schroom looks like it might give a person nightmares. I'm glad you're not planning on sauteed mushrooms for your omlette in the morning.
This is a wonderful photo and a reminder to me to look for some mushrooms too. Happy Ruby Tuesday!
Never heard of or seen a red mushroom before, very cool!
I just love that photo! Nice one on the macro:)Mine is posted HERE. Happy RT!~
Wow.. that second picture reminds me of the mushroom from the Super Mario Bros. game. Heheheh. Great shots!
My RT entries are posted here and here. Happy Tuesday!
I've never seen a red mushroom before. I can see why you like to photograph them, they're gorgeous. BJ
What a cute mushroom. You'd almost expect to see miniature fairytale characters camped underneath it. Happy Ruby Tuesday.
It seems as though a fairy might peek right out from under this lovely hiding place.
there are red mushrooms?Wow!
I've never seen a red mushroom so I thank you much for sharing this.
Wonderful images! The red in the last one is vibrant.
I wonder if there are Knomes in the area. :)
Very interesting post!
I like mushroom, and I use im my recipes!
But this kind I don't know!!
Thanks for posting in TODAY'S FLOWERS!

Very nice shots--I like taking pictures of mushrooms also.
Wow, I didn't know mushrooms came in red. I love your photo of it, very clear and bright.
I'm at www.askewtoyou.blogspot.com
O wow! I have never seen such a mushroom! And it's huge! Great pics!
Perfect for RT!
We have plenty of these, but I've not seen any red ones.
Have a happy day.
So pretty! I have never seen a red mushroom.
The bottom one looks like the "easy" button from Staples.
Hey! I had a shot of that first one up just a couple of weeks ago. But I didn't know what it was called. So I guess they grow everywhere, eh?
Love the color of the second one even better though. How vibrant a red is that?
Nice offering for this R/T!

Beautiful. I too like to take phtos of mushrooms but I do not know enough to know whichones are safe to eat.
That looks like a cartoon mushroom! I've never seen a red one in real life-very cool.
Seems a lot of us are amazed by the idea of a red mushroom. Very pretty and no, I wouldn't be cooking it either.
What lovely photos of the mushrooms!
Wow a red mushroom! I've never seen these before! Ours are just plain ol mushrooms without any color ;)
I have never seen a red mushroom other than in photos. Your shots are wonderful in their detail and color and clarity!
Great pics, I love photographing mushrooms. They stand so still and pose so nicely!!! hahaha
We had a frost forecast last night and I covered up the remaining impatiens and picked the green tomatoes, but I think it stayed just above freezing.
I've planned toshow somemushrooms too for R-T. We have a lot of them in the forest near by. And yes they are toxic.
That second one looks like maybe a lil gnome might live in there. Lol...nice shot.
EG: I agree about not eating them, but they do make lovely photos in red.
I wonder what are these named. We used to pick up mushrooms back in Czech, but these do not look edible to me :o)
The one popping out is fantastic !
I have never see a red one, but with all our rain, we have plenty and of course someone eats them and gets sick...
Interesting, I haven't seen those in the forest before.
fab shot! i love the water pics above too! have a great day! ^_~.
Hi and thanks for visiting my blog! I love mushrooms - I'm thinking this one is a species of Russula, maybe sanguinea. I've studied mycology a bit, but I would never eat one picked from the wild unless I was absolutely positive it was OK - it's just too risky!
I've never seen red mushroom...thanks for sharing..
Cool! I've never seen or even heard of a red mushroom before.
At first glance I thought it was a slice of watermelon! I've never seen these before.
