Fragile Dapperling (Leucocoprinus fragilissimus) At the disturbed edge of a dense mixed hardwood/coniferous forest. Growing at the top of a ridge near fallen oaks and pines ( and their roots).<br />
<br />
They &quot;melted&quot; immediately when touched! So cool (but frustrating for further photographs)!<br />
