Leucocoprinus birnbaumii
Leucocoprinus birnbaumii (luke-o-kuh-PRY-niss burn-BAUM-eee-eye) is a common mushroom in house plants and greenhouses or any other place with organically rich soil where the temperature is warm . It's a bright colorful mushroom that helps those of us in the far north get through the long, mostly mushroomlesss winter. It's also very common in the south in warmer climates, where it can grow outdoors, especially in mulched flower beds.

What a fascinating 'thing', Pauline, I couldn't make out what it was from the thumb-nail! Breezy here today, still hot, not a cloud in the sky, and no sign of the forecasted rain Sad Carol

A rather interesting and information pre-narrated supported by these extremely brilliant macro, simply brilliant, gorgeous colour shrouded in this rather nice lighting

A very fine macro shot ~ I wonder if it would work better without the patch of light in the background.
