Funky Fungus

A customer brought this fungus in for identification and it was so cool I wanted to share it with everyone. It's called "Bird's Nest" fungus and it typically grows on cow dung or decaying mulch. The "eggs" are actually the spores which are spread by raindrops falling into the "nest." They are harmless, but if you have these or any other fungus in your yard that you want to get rid of, simply sprinkle a little Hydrated Lime over them and they will dry up.
