Earthstars are fantastic mushrooms that look like little flowers on the forest floor.
They have a bulbous top full of spores that puff out every time a rain falls on them.
Surrounding it are petal type things that push the puffball higher up so the spores have a better chance of catching the breeze. Sometimes they’re tough enough to act like a wonky table.
Most Earthstars have one hole to release spores. The Salt-shaker Earthstar has loads, so it looks particularly creepy!
