I not very good at identifying toadstools, but I'm pretty sure this distinctive looking mushroom is a Shaggy Ink Cap. Thanks for letting me post it here Jordan. Can anyone help identify another two photos of fungi?

Oh yes, we call them a shaggy mane, but it is a member of the family Agaricaceae, and a cousin of the Inky Cap http://www.sharkenterprises.biz/photos/fungi/agaricaceae/coprinopsis/CoprinopsisAtramentaria01.htm

I'll look at your others, but I'm not great on mushrooms.
