good find . good bunch of yellows and a few greys in there. Just to be safe check the mushroom in the picture on the bottom right side (it could possibly be a verpa). easy ways to check are cut the mushroom in half lengthwise and check for a white cottony substance inside. The presence of this substance will indicate a positive id for verpa. Also check the attachment of the cap, the cap on morels will either be fully attached or attached about half way down the cap. If the cap looks like it is barely attached and can be removed from the stem easily it is a verpa, don't eat it. enjoy!

Those all look like morels to me!

The cap on a verpa has wrinkled ridges on it. The pictured mushrooms look like morels because the ridges on the cap aren't wrinkled and form cells or a network of cells that resemble honeycombs.
