They might look sturdy but these Shaggy inkcaps (Coprinus comatus) from yesterday’s walk would probably be gone if I had walked this way again today. You can see the taller one in the centre has already turned to mush, in the process producing a black ink that some people use for their artworks (see, for example, this work by Jo Brown, who creates amazing art inspired by fungi, and the rest of the natural world).
By coincidence I saw a group of these fungi in south Devon on the same day you posted your pictures. I suppose it’s their time.

I’ve seen them a couple more times too so, yes, definitely the right time for them. 🙂
