Earthballs Beyond DLSP Nature Trail, Oct. 21, 2010

Since Oct. 5, I've been tracking earthballs on an old road beyond the Nature Trail in Deer Lake State Park. See Oct. 19, Oct. 28 and Nov. 4.

On Oct. 21 the fully functioning earthball was still there and I located the nearby earth level fungus seen earlier. Compare progress on this page. Previous fungi must have been mushrooms; they were all gone. Here's a possible explanation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6f4j-pE-EyQ, which is ten photos of a tiny bug rolling a mushroom along.

I hope to track their progress each week. See Puffball Watch, 2010-2011.
