Caption: Cluster of puffball fungi on a tree stump in a forest. A hand touches the puffballs, causing them to release a cloud of spores. The head, called a gleba, matures to form a chamber filled with billions of spores, which are dispersed by the wind when released. Puffballs are found worldwide. Filmed in Denmark.
