On Oct 30, i noticed this breast under the roadside whitePine.

Files linked below are selected pics recording the continuing magical emergence of a family (#5 today) presided by her majesty.  She tastes delicious.

Identification is the challenge.  Pursuant to thorough review of these library books, Amanita is the probable genus?:  (ringed variety)

87-McNight(s), 99-Barron, 02-Money, 06-Miller(s), 10-Phillips

Thank you for your contributions - via john@emodo.net  which will be reported here per your advice.

The copper patina, or even this emergence may be in some part consequential to a multi-year practice of uprooting dandelions; if imperfectly -- following with a salt granule of copperSulfate fingerPushed to the top of residual.  The result of that practice is yard otherwise completely natural and organic, relatively free of dandelions.  Additionally, proximity to 2-lane connector road adds the winter complement of road salt.

Thank you for your contribution.
