I recently moved to Ireland from the west coast of the United States. I am posting photos of the wild and wonderful things I encounter.

Rainbows and Mushrooms
I saw both of these things in my back yard on Sunday. There was a perfect rainbow that went from ground-to-sky-to-ground, alas no pots of gold. There were also these funny mushrooms in my lawn. The last time I mowed it, I was too lazy to pick up the grass with the grass catcher so I just let all the clippings mulch the yard. Well, about a week later these guys popped up! My Complete Irish Wildlife book (by Paul Sterry) says they are Shaggy Ink Cap, Coprinus comatus.
