Creepy Images

I was walking along our sidewalk, looking into our plant beds for something interesting to photograph for the “I  Heart Macro” page on the Studio Waterstone blog, when I came across several bundles of these “pods”.  But let me tell you, the close-up is very creepy indeed.  Sometimes, it may be better to not look so close at some things.  This pic does lend something to the upcoming spookiness of Halloween!

Apparently this "fungus" loves rain, which allows the spores to leave the
nest and start new colonies.

Found out today it's called bird's nest fungus and usually grows
in mulch with the special sauce--made by horses.
