Curiosities in Nature

Why have I posted a picture of dog vomit growing in the mulch beneath my blueberry bush?  HA!  You were fooled!  That is NOT dog vomit.  It is Dog Vomit Fungus.  For real.  It is commonly seen in the spring after soaking rains.  Here is an informative and amusing link for your further edification.  It is actually not a fungus, but a slime mold.  Fascinating!
