No idea what it is but it was found in a pine forest above 6000 feet.

Looks like it might be a flower of some kind. Amazing the things you find on the forest floor. ;)
One names is Snow Plant. Its a fungus. Very common in the Sierras in June.

Name: Brown Mushroom (species unknown)
Edible: Unlikely (most simple/small brown mushrooms are inedible and often poisonous)
Location: Long Lake, Brainard Lake Recreation Area, Indian Peaks Wilderness, Colorado
Equipment: Canon 7D + EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro

Lovely picture Jon.

I'm going to be picky: if it's not an Agaricus of some kind then it's not a mushroom. Difficult to tell from the picture but it may be Gymnopilus spectabilis

Great shot. I get gigantic colonies of something similar in this one corner of my yard each year. I mean, colonies of maybe fifty individual mushrooms, but clumped together such that they form this single fungal mass that is often FEET in diameter.

Love that carpet of moss, too!

The fly agarics were shot with the 7D + 100 L. Unfortunately it is/was front focussing and at the time I made these pics, I was not aware of AFMA.
The one which is looking like a coral was shot with the shorty forty and 5D3.

Not to everyone's taste with so narrow DoF, but it was also a bit of an experiment with the 135 f/2 wide open with extension tubes, close to 1:1.

I'll have to dig out a couple I've done using the 100mm macro (non-L) with extension tubes, near to twice life size.
This last one is so "Super Mario"

Very nice, I especially like the the last one.
