Like a neon light

Another Cortinarius. Most of the corts I've run across, so far, are big hulking mushrooms, with thick, stubby stems, that hide under the leaves and forest debris. I usually find one by tripping over it or by a telltale lump on the forest floor. This brightly colored mushroom had pushed right through the duff and seemed to glow on a gray day. I could see it from quite a distance.
