Roaming behind my house I spotted this mushroom all alone. Nothing special, just something different. I liked the way the sunlight managed to highlight it.

It doesn't even look real! Nice catch.

Thanks, my daughter said it looks like an egg in a nest (pine straw nest). And I am guessing it is a mushroom. May have to go back tomorrow and take it apart.

Update:
Think I will leave it alone....I found out that it appears to be an atypical button stage of Amanita. It should mature into a toadstool-shaped mushroom. It is highly poisonous.
