earthball earthball earthball earthball

30A Deer Lake SW

On October 17, 2010 I found these earthballs between the road and one of my favorite patches of deer lichen on the SW side of Deer Lake, Santa Rosa Beach, NW Florida. Three of them have emerged and are splitting open to reveal their inner spores. The fourth pictures a fissure in the earth. I'm watching to see if anything comes up out of it. These are the first I've found on this site this year.

On Oct. 24, see the next walk.
