Bird's Nest Fungi
At first glance this does not resemble fungi, or at least the kind of fungi we are familiar with. It just goes to prove that fungi comes in many forms and varieties. The design of this amazing species is for the purpose of dispersing their reproductive spores. The spores are encased in the 'eggs' (peridioles) which are ejected in all directions by the force of rain drops falling into the 'nest'. WOW! how inventive is that?!
