More Wild Mushrooms

All the rain we have been having has really sprouted a lot of mushrooms.
This one that we found was different, instead of the normal gills under the cap, there is a spongy-looking substance.  That substance is actually small tubes that hold the spores.
I had to do some research to find out that this type of mushroom belongs to the Boletes and Polypores family.
I love when nature provides these learning opportunities.

Note: never eat wild mushrooms if you are unsure of their safety.
