I'm far from being an expert but they may be Shaggy Parasol , which if I'm right , is edible .
Having said that, the only ones I eat now are Ceps (Boletus Edulis) because I can identify it with certainty and it's the best tasting mushroom .

Fine specimens, shaggy parasols for sure.
Lovely capture, but remember for mushrooms you have to get dirty by laying down to get them at their low height, adds to the fun, but this shows the wonderful detail in the caps.
Super capture

This is a wonderful capture. Besides the superb detail the complementary yet contrasting warm colours are a feast for the eye.

Really well seen and captured. I like the way they seem to be joined at the base, then push each other apart, gives a nice rhythm to the shot. Lovely detail, this really does need to be seen large.

Hello Albert.
Not tried photographing Fungi myself yet and no idea what they are.
Still, good photography comes through whatever the subject.
Great exposure, blends well with the colour in its environment.

Your Composition works well and I'm pleased to see you didn't clear all the leaves away as they add to the shot.

Well Done.
