    Nice! I like the detail on the white cap and stem. Makes me wish I could bounce some light up to lighten the shadow but that's probably just me.

    Really like the contrast with the forest floor.

    I think that is Macrolepiota rachode.

    I'd say it was about 9 inches tall.

    I had never seen one like this either. I thought is was pretty awesome looking mushroom. They eventually start to flatten out on the top instead of being round like that.
