Giant Puffball Mushroom

Calvatia gigantea

Description:

About the size of a standard soccer ball, with another one about the size of a chicken's egg about a foot away. I placed my foot in the pictures for size comparison, but in the first one my foot's in the background and the size is a bit skewed.
