Impressive shot and a comic mushroom.

This is the Shaggy Inkcap, www.first-nature.com/fungi/coprinus-comatus.php.

It is edible when young, before it dissolves into a black inky substance, which was used at one time for ink, and does grow in North America.

It also contains a substance that is being researched, with some success, for the use in breast cancer.
