Weirdly Beautiful

 

One of our members has sent me this picture, taken while out walking in The Ancient Forest, Melton.

My first thought was Parasol Mushrooms, which grow in mixed woodland, especially if there are conifers.  But, I can’t find any images of Parasol mushrooms being so… frilly and amoeboid.

So, I don’t know, but they are definitely weirdly beautiful!  And huge!

If anyone can cast any light, please do.
