Possibly honeyfungus - can't see the stem (called a stipe) - does it have a 'collar' around it? Do the gills touch the stipe?
It's not going to do you or anyone else any harm. In fact honeyfungus is edible when cooked (though not very tasty).
The main part of any fungus is the mycelium (a bit like roots) which will be under the ground all over your garden, feeding on rotting organic matter, tree roots etc - the fungus you see is just the fruiting body and it will disappear as soon as the weather conditions turn colder. It will probably pop up again for a few days when the conditions are right next autumn.
There is nothing you need or can do to get rid of it.
The only drawback to having honey fungus in your garden is that it may attack some varieties of trees and shrubs. The RHS has a list of susceptible and resistant plants - there's a link on this site https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=180
Some people think it's a disaster to have honey fungus in the garden, but there are many famous and beautiful gardens that co-exist with it ......... and like other fungi, it is very beautiful
