Birth of Mushrooms

The other day I spotted these mushrooms. They seemed to have appeared over night. 

Later that day I noticed the caps were starting to crack.

The next morning the caps were open. How wonderful it is to be able to observe nature coming to life!


It is lovely to see. :) I especially like to see growth that doesn't involve pain. I'm beginning to see signs that it's possible. lol

Likely a genus Coprinus. They appear overnight.
Did you happen to look at it day or two later? The turn into goo, hence are called "ink caps".

Yes, I did look at them the following days and they basically turned into mush. I thought it was because of the heavy rains, but perhaps they were destined to do that.
