  1. Lisa, I saw you tried to link in another photo yet it rendered as a link, not a photo. I just wanted to explain why. For it to render as a thumbnail, you need to use the full link. The full link has the ".html" at the end, whilst the short link only ends with a number.

    Fixed it for you in your post, but know you know why it happened.

''Lactifluus piperatus'' , commonly known as the peppery milk-cap, is a semi-edible basidiomycete fungus of the genus ''Lactifluus''. Despite being edible, it is not recommended by some because of its poor taste, though can be used as seasoning when dried. The fruiting body is a creamy-white mushroom which is funnel-shaped when mature, with exceptionally crowded gills. It bleeds a whitish peppery-tasting milk when cut. Widely distributed across Europe and eastern North America, ''Lactifluus piperatus''.. more
