More fungi! This time a collage of fungi from the Puffball family. Interesting balls of fungi that often break open to release a puff of smoky spores. Some release an oozy substance instead.

All taken on my property, Far Nth Queensland, Australia.

    Fabulous collections! Beautiful work! You must have some property!

  • Thanks Kim, it’s very lovely, bit smaller than 3 acres, it’s rainforest and what is called dry sclerophyll, which is small gums and woodland, a creek runs my boundary with beautiful fresh water and one of my boundaries is on World Heritage rainforest, which has walking tracks in it called Misty Mountains…I’m very lucky, except right now we have a cyclone bearing down on us and are in warning stages, it will cross land in about 2 hours but think I’m enuff south for it to pass me OK. :O)
