Found this weird fungus out in the woods. The center looked like the surface of a bubble. IMG_0825.JPG

That isn't a fungus, it's a slime mold. It's almost certainly a species of Stemonitis, and it looks something like S. axifera, but slime mold and fungus ID to species is usually impossible without a microscope.

You really don't know slime mold until you cram your foot in your boot one morning....
