Fairy Condo's or Mutant Mushrooms...You Decide!

I found these awesome mushrooms growing in my woods on Friday and had to snap some pictures. I don't remember seeing this particular type before so I thought they were pretty cool! I can just see faries moving into these as condo's! I know I have faries too, since I had a fairy ring (too bad I didn't get a picture) in the spring right in my front yard. Obviously I have daring fairies for them to be dancing in my front yard! Anyways here are my pictures:

This one looks like Hairdresser Fairy lives here. It reminds me of a bad Beatles hairdo.

The top mushrooms, as far as I can tell, are Hedgehog mushrooms. The French call them pieds de mouton. The latin name is Hydnum repandum. They are edible and very good. However, don't take my word for it, find an expert locally. The bottom one is "lawyer's wig" or shaggy ink cap (Coprinus comatus)

Those are really cool looking. I like the lawyer's wig one.

Cute mushrooms! I know the Coprinus comatus too, it grows on the lawn and in the woods her in Finland.
