We found some puffballs in the garden. Here is a photo and a video:
They are not plants – they are in their own kingdom of life. They don’t have chlorophyll for photosynthesis, and their cell walls are made of chitin – like the exoskeletons of insects and crustaceans. Fungi are cool.
The video shows the spores being released, filmed in slow motion and then slowed down a further 25%.
