Common Puffball (Lycoperdon perlatum)
I once heard a joke about this mushroom: "A very bad song by Madonna is improved immeasurably if you walk through the woods singing:
'Lycoperdon, puffed for the very first time . . .'" I found this beauty growing in the forest just outside of Buckley, Washington.
