Black Bead Fungus

Black Bead Fungus

Hiking out towards the car, even with a storm approaching,
I had to stop everything to photograph this unusual specimen
of fungi.... this shot was taken with my macro lens, although
I did take a few with the wide angle too!

This image appears both in my September PAD gallery and a little impromptu
gallery that I am calling: Sleeping in the Dirt... (The gallery could also be
titled, "I'm addicted to my wide angle lens"!!!!)

I have some pictures of the same thing, are we sure its not some kind of bug dropping?
I would like to know more about it.
