the mushroom says 'I look like an umbrella'
the walnut says 'I look like a brain'

A nice find. They look like Panther Cps and can be deadly.
I would have done a little gardening to remove some of the grass stems though, or even just flattened them down.
Some nice detail, the light looks a little harsh on the caps, a small diffuser would perhaps have been advantageous just to stop a bit of the light on the whites.
Good colours against the green grass.
