Tasty treats abound our fields and countryside this time of year, but please please please take caution when picking. I swapped stories with a friendly neighbour today, and it still seems that even the most professional mycologists make mistakes. In one extreme example an unfortunate guy poisoned his whole family, after cooking with his prized specimens.

    The snakeskin stem distinguishes it from the shaggy parasol.

    The parasol is the best mushroom you can eat.
