A row of puffballs curves down the grassy hillside at Lake Cheston. These fungi are related to mushrooms (in the Basidiomycota) but grow all their spores internally, then either puff them from an orifice at the top of their swollen bodies, or let them passively disperse when the puffball disintegrates.
I noticed this arc of puffballs yesterday but couldn’t figure out how to show the beauty of the curve. Junebug makes a fine complement because of her color and contrapuntal pose!
I wonder what they are feeding on to grow in a line like that?
