Funky Fungus?

These funky little flower look-alikes were abundant in a small area. Are they a fungus?

Weird...I don't know what that is!

I think this may be its name: Geastrum saccatum. It's part of a group called earthstars, apparently.

Definitely mushroomy. Earthstar -- what a great band name that would be.

Oh, cool fungi! I have seen those in pictures but never in real life.

Eek. That's creepy looking. Whatever it is, I wouldn't advise eating it . . .
