Found some glowing good Hedgehog mushrooms today. Here is a look at a half pounder.

The cap has lots of splitting which gives it a certain character.

Here is what I mean by glowing good as they really stand out from a far away distance.

There are actually a few different looking hedgehogs out in these woods today. The large red-brown capped (Hydnum repandnum) at the back, the most common in this area (Hydnum repandum var alba) with the light tan cap in the middle and last and what seems least, up front all alone, one tiny (Hydnum umbilicatum). All 3 of these Hedgehogs though are choice edibles. ciao
