Common Inkcap

Observation - Common Inkcap - UK and Ireland. Description: Found in a small cluster on a long-dead tree trunk, the gills are starting to deliquesce, turning inky black. I know these are very common (hence the name!) but these are the first I've found since I started mushroom hunting, so I was chuffed.
