Mushrooms galore!

I have a new appreciation for mushrooms. They are everywhere. I've become more aware of them, and today I took two of my kids and a niece and nephew with me for a walk. They did an amazing job spotting mushrooms for me, and I love seeing them in the process of erupting from the earth. If you can help me identify any of them, I will really appreciate it. Generally, they all look different to me, so my apologies if I repeated myself.

Someday a DSLR

I miss my SLR. I miss manual focus.

I currently have a Canon PowerShot. It's okay for everyday photography, but not for trying to focus on distant insects and tiny flowers. I am at the mercy of autofocus on my camera and also my cell phone. It's so frustrating to watch my target appear in focus only to quickly become a blur. Forget trying to focus on a tiny spider in a web. Fortunately, I am usually able to get at least a pretty good image from both devices.

I am hoping that by next summer, I can purchase a new camera. If anyone has any recommendations, please let me know. I'm not looking to spend a fortune, but I'd love something that helps me take better photos.
