A few mushrooms are parasitic on others. This is one, the yellow species, I hadn't seen before. Scleroderma citrina is the Common Earthball.
The stereo is crosseye.
Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/100 at f11 ISO 500, hand-held.
I saw a fair few earthballs - but never the other.

I have seen hundreds over the years and this is the first one for me. It did not belong where we were but had been brought along as an exhibit . You just never know when you might find one in photogenic condition.
