Puffball - I had planned to continue photographing this brown beauty until it expired but Lawnmower Man happened!

Yes this rather large fungi specimen is now scattered all over our backyard.
Oh well..... the best made plans of mice and men!
Mushrooms are something I buy at the grocery for my salad or to saute but know very little about them. In an effort to identify this puffball I stumbled upon this awesome website about mushrooms, fungi and mycology. Well worth visiting -
