Another aptly named mushroom.  These are Little Helmets.  Dozens of them poked their heads through the moss on Sunday, September 29th.  By yesterday, October 2nd, there was nary a trace of them.  But they are sweet. I was able to get several good shots and will post one or two more.  To give you an idea of how little the Little Helmets are, here is a second image showing my setup of the shot. The Little Helmets are the white spots in front of the camera, about 2-3 cm in height. ☙
