Leucocoprinus fragilissimus

So on our hike the other day Abi and I ran across the most beautiful mushrooms.  They almost looked like flowers.  There were not many of them and they were all in the same area.  I emailed a mycologist at UGA and she identified them as Leucocoprinus fragilissimus.

The tops open up like this and are very thin.  The stem is long and skinny.  The description says that they do not last very long and we felt blessed to be able to see them.
