Morel mushrooms are considered a gourmet delicacy by many people. They only appear in wooded areas for a couple of weeks in the early Spring. This was the first I have sighted this year. Sliced up and fried, they are quite tasty.

About the size of a baseball. They say these are edible when picked before getting too old, but I don’t think I’ll try it.

This mushroom, identified as Chlorophyllum molybdites, is responsible for more hospitalizations in the U.S. than any other poisonous mushroom. (It leads to projectile vomiting and diarrhoea, and IV’s are needed to restore fluid balance.)
