Bird's Nest Fungi
Bird's Nest Fungi. Gainesville, Florida. 2012.
These cool little fungi look just like a tiny bird's nest. They grow on decaying wood and mulch. Reading up on the fungi, I learned that the they have an interesting method of spore dispersal. The nest is a splash cup. If a raindrop hits the cup at the right angle, the shape of the spores makes them fly a good distance out.
