Giant Puffball Mushroom Watercolor Sketch

On a dark forest floor, this mushroom was found. Almost comical upon first glance, as it is the size of a basketball… hence the name giant. These puffballs can grow full size overnight. And my National Audubon Society Mushroom Field Guide states that an average size giant puffball can contain 7 trillion spores.
7 Trillion!

It is always exciting to find these treasures in the forest.
