Blue roundhead (Stropharia caerulea)

I saw this incredible looking toadstool during my lunch break at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, England and went back to it the following day with my tripod and cable release and a pair of scissors for cutting back the undergrowth. These litte gems are supposedly widespread and common but you have to keep your eyes peeled as most I have found have been in undergrowth and hedgerows.
