Can anyone help me identify this mushroom? (a still frame from video taken in the Pyrenees near Gavarnie in France). Also is it edible or poisonous?

Pyrenees Mushroom


This is almost certainly the parasol mushroom, Macrolepiota procera. The parasol mushroom is edible, but many other often resembling mushrooms are not. Never eat a wild mushroom unless you're an expert or consulted one. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macrolepiota_procera enter image description here
