Part journal, part ID guide, and part sketchbook.
Mostly mushrooms, some birds, a few moths, and plenty of other natural history topics.

Mushroom Log - late August
Sunny Side Up - Bolbitius titubans
Smooth Volvariella - Volvariella speciosa
At first glance these appear to possibly be a species of Amanita, with the cups at the base, the patches on the cap, and the overall clean, white appearance. But a trip back the next day revealed that they had pink gills; Amanitas typically have white gills. Plus the location of garden bed at the edge of a parking lot isn't really the norm for most Amanitas, but it is for V. speciosa.
