An amazing mushroom

I've never seen a mushroom that looked like this before (nor had my gardening companion).

Its markings echo long-ago learnings about selective pressure around moths, and industrial Britain. (They became darker as coal ash polluted the air over a century ago).

Nevertheless, this was an extraordinary-looking mushroom, seen on a outing this morning to Biltmore  -- in the Winter Garden.

  1. I was amazed that my (old) digital camera "saw" something even close to what we could see -- totally amazing!

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
