Yellow Fuzz Cone Slime The details of this slime mold are amazing considering how tiny it is! This is the sporangia stage, which is characterized by yellow goblets on top of brown stalks with fluffy, yellow spores coming out of the goblets that had opened.  However, the goblets pictured were still closed and had not released any spores yet. They were 2-3 mm tall.

    1. Thank you! I was lightheaded from holding my breath for so many shots after finding this slime mold! They are so tiny and hard to see that a lot of the time, I have no idea exactly what I’m shooting until I check the LCD screen :P Posted one year ago

        1. Yep, but it definitely helps - or, so I'm convinced! Posted one year ago
