Most lovely Fungi

Due to a number of converging circumstances, a batch of pickles couldn’t be preserved.  When we first prepared to can, we discovered an interesting mold growing on top (which is not unusual and not life threatening).  I covered the rinsed pickles with water and covered the jar with plastic wrap.  There it sat for three days.  The mold began to come back and I saved it for a day when DW and BW would be by.  Here are the photos.  I’ve not been able to identify it.  FYI:  Because I’d filled the jar with water and not added additional salt,  I didn’t feel comfortable eating the pickles.  So we tossed them.
