Puffball On The Attack

Originally uploaded by Robin ? Accidental Beauty

I was out in my backyard taking pictures of crazy stuff (and there is a lot of weird ass stuff in my yard, you can see them all in my flickr) but Manly Man particularly wanted me to get a shot of this puffball in our backyard.

It was a little scary looking but I of course had to get some shots of it. After I got this shot I was trying to get a picture of something else when I stepped on it :omg:

The thing attacked me with the dust you can see inside of it and I screamed. I screamed like a little girl and ran for my life. I screamed for my husband (who was inside and didn’t hear me). It was traumatizing.

I found a youtube of someone smashing one.

    I used to deliberately poke them to make them smoke. When one ran out of dust, I’d move on to the next one.

    I was an odd child. :crazy:

    i think you need to get your tripod and find another one, then make it smoke and get pictures of the dust pouring out of it!

    And also….you screamed? For real?

    Come here, you need a hug
