-------------------- Dodging and burning are steps to take care of mistakes God made in establishing tonal relationships.
The first ones are polypores, and look close to Polyporus alveolaris. Although almost certainly not poisonous, they are probably too tough to seriously consider eating.
The second one looks like an Agaricus. If so, the spore print is not black, it should be a dark chocolate brown. For an ID beyond species we need for you to have the specimen in hand so you can answer questions about it. For example, we need to know the bruising reaction and odor, both of which are very important when identifying Agaricus. Many Agaricus species are edible (like the ones at the grocery store), and there are also several poisonous species. They are also one of the tougher groups of mushrooms to identify to species.
Good photos. The turtles are great - they're getting to be pretty rare locally here.
