A close up look inside an open Bird's Nest fungi. The 'nest' is about 10 mm across and the individual little eggs less than 1 mm. There is also an 'egg' on the rim of the nest on the lower left side. The eggs are actually packets of fungal spores that are dispersed by raindrops to the surrounding area. Found on Malcolm Island, BC, Canada.
