Glistening Inkcap

Coprinellus micaceus is potentially poisonous if collected from roadsides or polluted land, where the mycellium can bioaccumulate heavy metals such as cadmium and lead; this results in the mushrooms containing high concentrations of these toxins.

This will be my last posting for at least a week, whilst I go walking

They might be toxic but they look wonderful, Lisl.
Lisl: These were in woodland, so were probably OK, Ray, thank you
i like your Glistening Inkcaps Lisl... i wouldn't try to eat them anyway grin
have a great walk and think of us now and then... because we are still stuck in the snow...
Hugs from Penny and....petersmile
Lisl: Poor Peter and Penny - you have been stuck a long time now, and I do think of you both. I'll try to bring back some pictures to show off our spring, but it is very slow to arrive here
A pity that they are toxic Lisl as they look so beautiful!
Lisl: They are really neat, and these looked good as not one had started to decay

I won't be having a plateful of these for dinner today then Lisl

happy walking!
Lisl: Not today then, Chris, but aren't some of the wild mushrooms a delight to eat
So, all that glitters is not gold, then, Lisl! At least you captured the image nothing else.

Enjoy your week of walking and stay safe. I'll miss you!
Lisl: Thanks, Ginnie - it is always strange these days to be "out of touch", but I my get Wi-fi somewhere

Great picture and from my Mom I learned, never touch a mushroom you don't know. They might be very poisonous and you have to know which one you can touch and because you don't know......
Great shot!!
Have fun and enjoy your week walking, don't forget your camera smile
Lisl: We eat quite a variety of wild mushrooms, Astrid, but are ultra-careful. And thank you - I will probably take two!
Enjoy your walk and be careful what you eat
Lisl: I will be careful, Bill - I have some important people to meet on 18th May!

I'm going to have a mushroom omelette today.
Lisl: One of my favourite lunches, Richard

I'm very wary of anything that does not appear on a grocery store shelf smile They make for a fine image, though. Where are you walking?
Lisl: The Oxfordshire Way, starting at Bourton-on-the-Water, Alan
I think my very favorite subject is fungi of all kinds. This grouping is wonderful amid the wood chips, which will eventually be turned into soil.
Where will you be walking this time? I am happy for you.
Lisl: I hoped you might like this one, Mary. I know how you love fungi of all sorts. And thank you - we are starting to walk one of the lesser-known trails called the Oxfordshire Way, which does just that. Although the County is not that far from her (about an hour or so), it is one we have rarely walked
Enjoy the walk, Lisl - I'm sure you'll come back with some great pics!
Lisl: Thank you, Tom - I will do my best!

Not ones to eat lightly sautéed in butter then ;o)

Have a good week walking.
Lisl: I don't think so, though I understand that the fruit bodies are edible before the gills blacken and dissolve, as long as they grow far away from any danger of pollution. Thank you - I am looking forward to a linear walk
A biology lesson here today
Lisl: Yes - isn't it interesting?

Wow, scary stuff Lisl, but perhaps they could be used to mop up pollution.
Lisl: There's a thought, Chad - like Plane Trees
An excellent picture Lisl, like Alan, if it doesn't come from a supermarket shelf then I won't touch it. Enjoy your walking, oh that i had your fitness and stamina.
Lisl: Thank you, Brian - I want to keep walking as long as I can, but I am a bit slow on hills!
Best not to eat them then but they are very photogenic. Enjoy your walking Lisl
Lisl: Thank you very much, Janet. I am looking forward to doing a linear walk for change

They look lovely Lisl.

Have a lovely walking break
Lisl: They really were quite striking. Thank you, Anne - I have been looking forward tothis week
Lovely to look at, though...
Lisl: They are very attractive, Larry

Enjoy your walking smile
Lisl: Many thanks, Cherie - off shortly
That is an excellent shot. The colour really pops.

Enjoy the walk!
Lisl: Thank you very much on both counts, Michael

I wish you a lovely walk week - together with your husband - and bring back lots of daff photos! I can already see them here, too!
Lisl: Thank you, Philine - this week will be in another area, but I will ring back pictures of that county (Oxfordshire)

You should not eat them but these small mushrooms are very attractive to look. I like their colors
Wonderful shot - I love how they're clustered like that!
Enjoy your walk... stay safe and return with lots of photos!
that was an interesting bit of info you shared with us. do enjoy your experiences ahead, Lisl
