  1. Visually very much like some planetary object. Posted 3 months ago
  2. Really love this subject selection, William!

    PS: Although you're right that technically this is a carrot, I'd say it's better to identify it as the main species of interest, the fungus, like you did for the other two photos. Reason being that when visiting the carrot species record, this isn't easily recognizable as a carrot.

"Sclerotinia sclerotiorum" is a plant pathogenic fungus and can cause a disease called white mold if conditions are conducive. "S. sclerotiorum" can also be known as cottony rot, watery soft rot, stem rot, drop, crown rot and blossom blight.
