This really is an odd looking fungus. If it was white and black it would resemble a soccer ball. If I saw this on the ground I think my first impulse would be to kick it. Wonderful shot with excellent colors, textures, and details.

You're right, it's an odd looking fungi.
The honeycombed ball shape is most interesting..
You could always make a Christmas ornament out of it?
Just hollow it out a bit, stick a small light in there, & viola ;}
Very nice mf,

Fantastic idea from mother nature! Fungus ready to be served at beach's bar [you know - you can easily stick into it these small pipes and umbrellas from drinks [yes I know my English is funny, but I don't know proper words] :-)]. But seriusy - I envy you - great subject very well captured.

Nice capture of a strange-looking fungus that I would call the Golfball Fungus. The POV and technical qualities of this image are first class to make it a fine portrait of the species.
It may have a vernacular name that surely must have something to do with a ball of some kind.
TFS this fine contribution,

Some of these things are so unusual...and I get the notion that if someone picks the wrong one...they die instantly by touch...but not being a fungi or spore expert..I would not know. Only the tabloids cover thqat sort of thing and I am not sure what is real and what isn't.....but this is really an image and of good quality and noted so well as a good stand-up guy would do!
