Artist's Description

Out hiking ‘my’ farm this past year…got my first ‘new to Kansas’ for the year (I only got 3) and new species find for ME . This is a type of fungi that grows on cow pucky or/and mulch. They look like TINY stars…about the size of the tip of a pencil eraser. When rain hits them…they POP. Literally. WITH sound. The little balls are full of their spore…so when the rain comes…it helps distribute them just like Puffball fungi.
Sphaerobolus stellatus aka Cannon Fungi or Artillary Fungi
NE Kansas, 2011
Macro mode on my Olympus IR 500 (this is a flip-open camera…no lenses)
