The View from the Front Porch
Aren't they called "fungi" or something like that. Not a mushroom, but related maybe. Just a bad guess.
Looks like some sort of spore or as PJ mentioned, fungi. Also looks a little like it could be an outcropping from the root of a tree. Do we win a prize for the winning guess? Please don't say the object in the picture.
If guessing is allowed, here is my best effort: fossilized hot cross bun.
Yes, it is a fungus of some sort. Watch it until it matures, and you may be lucky enough to see it pop and spread tiny spores aroung. If you get impatient, you can just kick it open and watch then fly.
I thought it was a fungus, but I'm curious what kind. And I love the hot cross bun reference. Anyone else ever eat one (the bun, not the fungus) piping hot from the oven. Yum.
Just came over from Leon's page, look this up http://www.mushroomexpert.com/phallaceae.htmlthey are very nasty smelling and in the stinkhorn family.
I think it's a puffball.http://www.mushroomexpert.com/phallaceae.html
Whoops, wrong link. Here's the correct one:http://www.mushroomexpert.com/puffballs.html
