A shaggy mushroom

This scruffy mushroom, Lepiota magnispora, was one of the first that I was able to identify when I began getting to know the mushrooms in my area. They seemed to be everywhere and they like to hang out in wooded areas so they stand out, even from a good distance, which makes them very easy to find. I haven't seen many in the past couple of years, so it's been a real pleasure to find them lurking around nearly every corner of the woods this season.
