|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The gem-studded puffball or devil's snuff-box (Lycoperdon perlatum) is a moderate sized puffball mushroom with a round fruiting body, tapering to a wide stalk. It is off-white with a top covered in short, spiny bumps or "jewels".|
When mature, they become brown and a hole in the top opens to release spores which are released in a burst when the body is compressed by rain drops, a touch, falling nuts, etc

Nice title :-)
Good POV and nice details
Sometime a simple object and simple composition make a great picture. This is one of them. Crisp texture of this white fungus against blurry soft colors BG is very nice.
Great shot and nice PP works.
Fungi is sharp in a small DOF. Very well done..
Plus...there's light falling on it but still the white part is not over exposed.
