Puff The Not So Magic Puffball

Not as good as a dragon but easier to find. Lycoperdon pyriforme or Pear-shaped Puffball is what it looks like in my Mushrooms of Ontario and Eastern Canada book by George Barron.

They usually come in multiples of 5 to 50 or so. I found this one on its own not far from a group of 8 and a few other singles and doubles.

I came across a couple of these (or something similar) in the woods on Sunday. I thought it was too late in the season for them.
