Show Us Your Puffers

This challenge closed almost 6 years ago.

The Challenge

I don’t mean someone SMOKING…I mean a mushroom/fungi SPORING!
Way to do this?
Puffballs that are ready will spore out if you tap them.
Many cup fungi will spore if you blow VERY lightly on them.
Slime molds will often ‘puff’ if they’re in their sporing stage and you blow LIGHTLY on them.
On windy days, large groupings of mushrooms will spore up into the air (this is when back-light on the fungi REALLY works!).
Artwork and photography only. No T-shirts!
This is definately a true CHALLENGE of a challenge. Good luck!

Judging / Voting Criteria

Must show fungi, mushrooms or slimes sporing out.
