American Caesar's Mushroom

These beautiful mushrooms popped up in the park right across the street from my house in Atlanta. This species is commonly called The American Caesar's Mushroom. It is considered a prime edible by experts, but it is a member of the Amanita family which includes some extremely poisonous varieties with names like Death Cap and Destroying Angel. There are some highly experienced micologists who will not eat any mushroom from the Amanita family.
