X is for Xanthous

I know they're a little on the orange side, but bear with me here.

After racking my brains for a sensible X word (X-ray! Xylophone! Xenophobe! I’ve got photos of none of those!), I leafed through a dictionary (X chromosome! Xebec, a three-masted Mediterranean ship! Xenon, an invisible gas! also helpful!), and finally started browsing dictionary.com, which recently updated its Flash or had a security breach or something, so I get a creepy error message every time I view the definition for a word.

NEVERTHELESS! I have discovered that “xanthous” means “yellow.” And these mushrooms are yellow-ish!

And there we have it.
