Shaggy Mane Mushrooms

I am enjoying mushroom season. When I went to Thetis Lake Regional Park on Saturday (our first sunny day in about a week) I crawled around in the undergrowth for a few hours photographing very tiny mushrooms and when finally exhausted and sated I trudged back to the parking lot I was rewarded with a grove of Shaggy Mane Mushrooms within a few steps from the parking lot.

Those are completely different. I don't think I've seen them here.

Damn, now I want to read up on this classification of plants to learn more about their different physiology/photosynthesis, non-chlorophyll ..etc.

I've seen these before, I think in my yard in Washington.

Pelicans have taken up residence on a small island near the Songhees walkway. In the news tonite.
