Lawyer's Wigs

Lawyer's Wigs
These mushrooms, examples of the widespread species, Coprinus comatus, are known as Lawyer's Wigs, Shaggy Ink Caps or more commonly as Shaggy Mane mushrooms. They are edible when young and are even grown commercially in some places, but as they age they begin to "melt" as is evident from some of the individual plants in this photo. The photo was taken at the Devonian Botanic Gardens in Devon, Alberta, in the area of Edmonton.
