This sinister looking little character, the Blackening Waxcap (Hygrocybe nigrescens) suddenly popped up in the middle of our lawn, one misty moisty morning. Surprisingly it turns out to be edible, but I don't think I would want to risk it!! It is about 2.5 inches high and I had to prostrate myself for this shot - thank goodness for the flip screen on the Panasonic G2! Please view large if you have a moment.
