Mushrooms: Who knew there were so many kinds?

Since mid-August to now Sept 16th I’ve been taking pictures of all the types of mushrooms and fungus that I see popping up daily in my walks in the woods. Absolutely unbelievable, especially after a rainy couple of days. They are large and small, colourful, odd shaped and found alone or in clusters.

My challenge is to try to name them. I need to find a website or book that can help with that and have not yet had time. If anyone knows such a site let me know. Like Alice, I need to know if they will make me grow tall, or small,  or kill me on the spot!! I do not intend to eat any of them but it has been fun searching for new ones.
