    That first image is just perfection. Do you know if they were used to make ink or just earned their name because of that inky staining round the cap?

    Good eye! I had the same question as Lynn about the inkcaps. What an interesting mushroom! I was just listening to an interview on the radio with someone who makes inks out of found substances — not just natural but also urban detritus like rusty nails and brick dust. Which of course makes me wonder if maybe you *could* make ink from inkcaps. Hmm…
