Artist's Description

These adorable little gems of fungi grow throughout most of the summer months on pieces of dead wood that are damp and on the forest floor. Their name comes from the way these mushroom resemble a bird’s nest with eggs inside. The white “eggs” are spore sacs. The mushrooms are less than 1/4" across so look hard and you may find them:>)

This picture was taken in a hardwood forest in Montgomery County, PA, USA, on August 20, 2011.
