After the rain lots of ‘mushrooms‘ sprout seductively from the ground promising a good feed. The truth is most of them around here on the Coffs Coast are part of the tricky toadstool clan, like this little beauty. A good first hint in identifying who’s who is that toadstools grow under foliage and shady trees and mushrooms tend to like open pasture. I wonder if the tiny fly at its base is contemplating taking a nibble?
