Sharifa spore

Unidentified fungal spore picture taken with a scanning electron microscope, redwood forest habitat in Santa Cruz by Sharifa Crandall.

My friend, Sharifa, is working on her a PhD in Environmental Science, she also has a one year old daughter. We were watching the kids play together one night and she commented that that she sees spores everywhere now, especially in all of the variations of toy balls. Unadorned spores, adorned spores, cylindrical, and oblong spores, big and little spores… So many toy spores to play with.
