Dune Parasol Mushrooms

Parasol mushrooms, or Macrolepiota procera, are found in well drained soil. These large specimens, about the size of an adult hand, were in sand dunes at Salthouse, Norfolk.

What beautiful patterning on the suface.

These are said to be edible, although Wiki says that there is a rare similar fungus that is not, so beware!
