Gleba white, firm; becoming soft and yellow, then brown to dark brown and powdery as spores mature.

What a nice mushroom family. I like their shape when young. Sometime I eat them when nothing better ;-) Congratulations Jan and thanks for sharing this beautiful shot.

Excellent family portrait Jan! Very good POV, details and sharpness. Autumnal mood...

Hi Jan,
This is a fantastic image of puffballs. Have tried myself but did not get such a beautiful shot (I'll keep practicing)
POV and details are excellent.
