Your photos are out of focus. Try using the macro mode to take your photos. It's usually represented by a picture of a flower (usually like a tulip).

As a quick guess, your mushroom looks like a Cortinarius. If it is, at the area where the stem changes color from dark to light there should be some threads like spider web that will probably have turned rusty brown from having spores stuck to them. You may need a magnifier to see them - they are very small and thin. None of the species of Cortinarius are active or should be eaten. A few of them are poisonous, including some deadly species.

That, of course, is a wild guess. I can't see nearly enough detail to be remotely sure of what you have.

To make a spore print, cut the cap off of the stem and lay it, gill side down, on a sheet of white paper. It helps to place a bowl of glass over it. You should then wait overnight. In the morning there should be a heavy deposit of spore powder on the paper. We need to know what color that spore powder is.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
