I ran across these adorable little (2 inches tall) mushrooms in my yard.
It was dusk and I ran in to get my camera to take a picture.
Any of you who garden in humid climates will recognize the problem I encountered.
The camera lens fogged over instantly when it hit the humidity of the great outdoors.
But it resulted in an eerie moonscape fascimile.

Here's the unfogged version.
Not quite as mysterious.

Very cool, Weerobin! Looks like a school of Jellyfish. Also reminds me of my ghost pipe flowers that show up every year (but this year seem to be crushed under the pine tree that fell.)

Great photos! I really like the first one - worthy of hanging on a wall.
Have several different varieties showing up here as well. Seems the squirrels like to nibble on them.

It reminds me of the Ghost Pipes that I saw in the pictures on the Native Plant thread, too.
